Whirling Limbs…

*

…As Abadam and Yva made their way out of the garden in the

east, it seemed as though the leaves of the trees themselves

were whispering: “I will put enmity between you and the

woman, and between your seed and her offspring.

*

You shall bruise his head

as he shall bite your heel,

and he shall bruise your head

as you shall bite his heel.”

*

But it was the serpent Abadel hissing at

Abadam from the branches of the tree of life.

*

When Abadam and Yva had departed the garden in the

east, there was silence there about the space of one day.

 *

To bar the way to its holy mountain so that

Abadam and Yva could never return, the Spirit

appointed a cherub with whirling limbs of flame.
