Then, wisdom grew from fruit

and time was a seedling.

All creatures spoke the same,

hymn of bats, breath of horses.

We were winged and freedom

was etched on the soles of our feet.

Pathways in the earth and sky were

known not charted.

We stepped naked into the blazing sun

bared ourselves to golden rivers and

awesome tidal thunder.

            Hey, it’s music night! The band will be kicking in any minute, and my art supplies are spread out.
            Can I drink your share of the wine? I doubt you’ll be able to get here in time. xo

  1. This was a lovely uplifting look back to a more connected era. If only we could understand how free the mind, body, and soul is when we return only momentarily to that natural connection to our earthian ways. Now think of a life lived in that way. Makes one smile, doesn’t it?

  2. Hey,

    As posts get lost in stampede on WordPress, I am preparing my email list to inform my readers about important updates relates to my book(s).

    I don’t plan to do hard-core email marketing and spam your mailbox and will only be emailing you about availability and promotions that would be 3 to 4 times a year, max. Promise!

    Would you like me to add your e-mail address please?

    Thank you 🙂

  3. Great Art Deco painting that
    has inspired you this beautiful poem. I like it very much, Holly. Wonderfully crafted. Paradise before the Original Sin? Can we as human beings achieve greater freedom even though freedom will always be limited as it is an inherent condition to the human being?

    These are my favorite lines:

    “We were winged and freedom

    was etched on the soles of our feet.”
