Eyes opened

Eyes, opened

After Genesis 3:17-15 and I John 3:1-10

A single bite,
a single taste,
fruit forbidden,
they see themselves
as they are. Then
the sound, footsteps,
the walking 
in the garden,
footsteps thudding
through paths
and hearts,
the thudding
a pealing bell
of a bugle cry
of judgment.
