Desire…

It started in heaven

A man and a woman

An apple and a snake

When the Temptation

Overcame the promise

Desire had to overtake

About Sam

Cerca Trova is the Latin for ” Seek and you Shall Find “…. I’ve been in constant search for meaningful answers to many issues in my life..i have found some and many are still missing… I found answers in music, in poetry,in other’s words,and my personal experience… Yet I’m still seeking answers for so much more… I would love to share with you what I’ve found so far,and take you along on my journey in seeking the rest…

    Even in the beginning conflict arose,
    Desire edged out the promise by a nose,
    The garden and bliss were at stake,
    But felt to the temptation of a ssssssssssssnake.

    You have the fall of Adam well versed.

    Sounds like “you been there, done that!” I know that I have more times than I am willing to admit. 🙂 Great poem and photo. We need to be aware of that other little inner voice that whispers sweet lies to us! Hugs, pat

  6. That was very clever little poem, says so much about the truth of where everything comes, the desires … if it wasn’t for those desires …
