To hear that sound

After Genesis 3:1-19

To hear that sound
in the garden, of walking
in the garden, a music
in its own way, beautiful
yet ominous, terrible
and fierce, to hear
those footsteps is
to revere, to hear
those footsteps is
to fear, they move
with purpose, not idly 
to smell the flowers
but deliberately
in the knowledge
of what has happened.
