The First Pleasure

God Almighty first planted a garden.  And indeed, it is the purest of human pleasures.

— Francis Bacon

I imagine Eve

tended the roses

that bloomed

in the garden,

dreamily losing

herself 

down the silky

stairwells

into a beauty

that stills 

the soul.

—C.L. Fisher, January 2022
