ew...12 serpents in ones belly is not a good thing...on the second reading this seems a little saucy too...

Thank the powers that she did what she did, giving us the lust and desire. Hmmmm... Great work.
another finely crafted poem. thank you for sharing.
uh, there's nekkid people in your poem.I like the flow. well done.
That's a lot of allegory. And good."Trusssst in meeeee, jussst in meeee..."
i of course would risk the serpents. yum.
I like this poem very much.
This is simply stunning. What a vision of humanity! What poetry!Thank you for sharing this with us in the pantry.
Well done, Rene!I love the painting, with the ivy on the guy's privey, and the expression on the cat. is like, I don't wanna be here when it all goes down.
Rene, I love your use of the number twelve...its symbolism in this tale of creation can be linked to so many things, the disciples, the months, the zodiac ...I am sure you had something in mind..but its use leaves a world of possibilites that makes the poem universal....blessings...bkm
Wowzers, this is a fantastic read! Love the take from his point of view. Really well done!
Erotic and the ewwww..lots of emotions in this one.
You wrote that? It's great!xxoSC
I'm reading this as the discomfort of pregnancy and the pain of labour that resulted after "the fall". And I really liked it. New to your corner of blogland, but hope to be back.
moving. exactly what I needed to hear today.
Very powerful imagery and a great retelling of what went down in that Garden of Eden... newly wicked. Wonderful!
bravo...awesome art, your poetry is divine.
Untold stories from the bible.
Such imagery! I am always delighted, Rene...Pearl

Price-less, woman.Ditch him!
I'm thinking they'll be expecting. Wonderful writing. Fantastic use of symbolism.
My wife and I often appear like this painting when we are lounging at our favorite wilderness hot springs. I never would think that we have done something wrong in our innocence except for forgetting to bring the sunblock.Did I miss something?OneLove--TigerPS I love snakes
Dear Reneits beautifully evocative and powerful... 'As he wept gently / Contritely' great words...loved the picture too... Thanks for sharing..ॐ नमः शिवायOm Namah Shivayahttp://shadowdancingwithmind.blogspot.com/2011/03/whispers-seed-and-senseless-living.htmlAt Twitter @VerseEveryDay
Who can say, it like Rene? (Oooo that rhymes.) Brilliant piece of writing...even with the snakes!
Wow Rene...this is amazing...your writing burns with passion and truth! :-)
Whheew!! So NOW I know whom to blame for all those hidden "oohy" feelings inside :)LOVED this one, Rene!!! (creeps for the snakes.. but never mind those.. not in your poem at least :))
Inventive and well-built take on The Fall, which in itself is gutsy as a) well, it's The Fall and b)you put yourself out there by writing on a subject that virtually everyone is familiar with and is equally likely to have their own take on. This is very, very fine work.
Well done, you! First thing I've read on this lovely Sunday. I especially love this bit:"she coiled into herselfas twelve serpentsgnawed throughher middle":D
I enjoyed this. Great writing!
