A day like any other


A day like any other
like every other
begins
in joy, ends
in nakedness

we hid
we blamed
who told us were
were naked
to become gods we
learned nakedness

banished to the east
to the east where
the light is harsher


Painting: Adam and Eve by Jan Gossaert (about 1520), National Gallery of Art, London.

Wow. Nice.

"begins
in joy, ends
in nakedness"

Hopefully not many days progress like this but sometimes the pattern repeats and apples are eaten. Forgiveness and grace is our only hope.

banished
to hidden
nakedness
harsh light
though
not vanished
totally
into darkness
we live
with death
and wait
