The Dust and The Rib

08/22/2011

Out of dust came man

From man’s rib woman was formed

Dust and rib now one

Then the man ribbed the woman

And the woman blew the dust

A perfect prelude

To challenging days ahead

Where rib may crack, dust wiped out.

For The Gooseberry Garden on Adam and Eve.

Gooseberry Garden is the new site of Jingle Poetry.

For the benefit of the doubt πŸ˜‰

My darling Adam

Partake this delightful fruit

This shall make you wise

But please ensure my darling

That you take more bites than me

For the Purple Treehouse on Tanka 5-7-5-7-7

In Eden of modern world, have you ever been Adam or Eve or the snake?

We may have fallen but we can rise up. All is grace.

    Yep, guilty of all three I’m afraid 😦

    If we don’t take it lightly, it’s really difficult to chew… Very interesting writing! πŸ™‚

    LOVE the first one, so “punny”!! :o)

  10. Rekha Says:

    Both are equally good, enjoyable desserts…even so called relationships crack at the first sign of a dusty storm…

  11. Debbie Says:

    Wow have you been busy, creating something good with Him! πŸ™‚
    God bless you, sweet one!

  12. wordcoaster Says:

    Loved this one–you use different styles to great effect. As for your question, I’ve been all of the characters: the tempter, the first to fall, the blind follower, the blame-shifter.


  13. Very fun set of reads these, and a ponderance to sum them up, how splendid. I fear we have all taken the three mantles of Serpent, Eve and Adam in different situations. Great read.
    The Lonely Recluse.

  14. Classic NYer Says:

    Ooh! I love both of these… but the second one is hilarious!


  15. wow, love the dust and rib imagery, well done.

  16. Dust and spare ribs… sounds like a fast food take out meal in the desert to me… LOL Very witty and clever use of the prompt.

  17. Katherine Says:

    I agree with Kay Salady. This is a witty take on this week’s theme. Makes me think of how temporary relationships are nowadays; they can just “crack” or be “blown away”.

  18. Kay Salady Says:

    You’re amazingly witty. I have such a wonderful time reading your work. Thank you!
