Second of a Trilogy

Yet storm clouds gather as

prince of darkness

uncoils his ruthless strategy

to sabotage creation’s bliss.

Seductive voice burns into heart

challenging: Has God said ?

contradicting: You shall not die !


Mesmerised, tantalised

as wily tempter weaves

his beguiling charms

on innocent’s psyche.

desires overwhelming

new emotions stirring

reasonings controlling, till

battered will succumbs


Relationship’s ruination

through wilful disobedience,

hiding away – shame-filled

pointing finger of accusation

shifting blame away from self

symptoms of guilt ridden-ness,

and profound shift  of nature


All creation groans

beneath the weight

of homo sapiens’

dreadful fall

waiting for the

promised redemption
