On Some Rocky Cliff

by Jennifer Hill

On some rocky cliff
I went to Eden in my mind,
running through that garden--
eating from the Tree of Life.

A red-tailed hawk landed
with his prey in pointy talons, and
clutching my soul
I went to Eden in my mind,
and lost my way in lush vegetation.

Pursued by darkness,
I turned and crushed the serpent's head,
And I called to that hungry hawk,
free to soar if he pleased,
and we supped together,

On some rocky cliff
Eating from the Tree of Life.
