Walnut of Eden (based on the painting by Vladimir Kush)

Adam and Eve

safe from the elements

inside the shell risen from dust

brought to life by a gentle breath

and held now,

away from the wind of Paradise.

Close to each other.

Not guarded from God’s eyes,

who put them there

to shelter them

until they fall and sprout,

ready to walk on the Earth.

Cradled within their shelter

they embrace.

Waiting to be released

but not wanting to let go of each other.

Whether God planned it this way or not,

they need each other.
