NaPoWriMo April 18


Tonight in the soft dusk

Rain leaves the sky to join earth.

It slides across birch leaves

Drops from the eaves.

Listen for the message in the rain

Falling from sky to earth like god.

Lucifer himself fell–or rather, he jumped

Like lightning. Nine days it took

For Lucifer, so says Milton,  to light

into hell as Satan. Then

Eve and Adam danced with the garden snake

all in the garden with God.

Since then, all has changed in the garden of Earth.

Rain still falls on the just and the unjust.

Men distrust women

Women  fear snakes, and

Snakes crawl on the ground

In the sand, the swamp, the wind, and the rain.
