A Look into Quiet Garden of Eden (poem)
What does Eden Look Like?
When I think of the name Eden, I think of flowers, water, sun, and green, lush grass. That is why when my friends and I came upon a beautiful grassy place with a small little pond, it suddenly became our "Eden." We were escaping from school to hide where we shouldn't have been, but yet everything seemed so peaceful and serene.
The actual has one river, although there are four rivers that form into that one. It also has the T Garden of Eden ree of Knowledge, and the Tree of Life, and of course some animals (like the serpent that warns about the apples). But the garden still remains a little bit of a mystery. You know there must have been many beautiful flowers, and I always imagine it full of sunlight, giving everything a soft glow of yellow. Adam and Eve
Sparkling and sweet smelling
Is this sacred sanction.
It's full of laughing gay amigas,
Splashing in the sun's warmth.
They are together in their safe hideaway.
They are falling on a crystal river
And breaking through
the glassy surface, dripping
with the coolness of newfound peace.
Golden crowns shine.
Skipping in a wave of green,
and colliding with the breeze,
They feel at home
Within their quiet Eden.
What is Eden?
"Eden" can be defined in many ways, but all are about the same idea. When I think of Eden, I think of the garden where Adam and Eve were sent. Two other definitions are "a state of innocence, bliss or ultimate happiness," or "any place of complete bliss, delight, and peace." Either way, it is a great word.
Some people believe that "Eden" comes from the Hebrew word "eden" which is from the Sumerian "edin" which means "fertile plain." This helps to explain where the garden of Eden is actually located. You can read more about the discoveries found in these places by clicking this link.
There is a great story about Adam and Eve, and the garden of Eden in the bible. When you read many different passages in the bible (Genesis 2:14 or Genesis 2:11-2:12), there is often a reference to cities and rivers that exist today, therefore making me believe a little more, that there might have been a wonderful, glorious garden where the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge stood.
