TO EVE EVERYWHERE FROM ADAM OF ALL TIMES

It took You,
God
More than
Just one rib
To form
Her structure
So tender
So fancy
To let
My impossible
Dream
Step out from
The realm of
Fantasy.
It took you
More than
Just one rib
To answer
The yearning
Of my heart,
Modeling
This living piece
Of fine art.
Yes,
You did take
Just one rib,
Altering my whole
Anatomy
Promising to put
Pleasure
In place
Of loneliness,
Of agony.
You took
That one rib,
Filling
Its gloomy void
With
Strawberry-red
Flame of
Fire
That when I just
Woke up
I found no name
But called it
‘Desire’
Thanks be to You
God,
For in my life
She waves
Wondering
Between
Reality and
Myth
But without her,
My so-called life
Would always have
The very taste of
Death.
O God,
If you had not
Done
I would have
Taken out
My very heart
Out of the depth
Of my core,
Held it up, asking:
And this Lord,
What is it for?

With my painting: THE WOMAN (1980) – The woman … some see her as just a structure of physical attractions, while others, as a giant hand that never stops to give?
The poem and painting are in my book, LET’S BE ONE IN THE ONE-India 2017, amazon.com.
