Poem in three stanzas based on the story of the Garden of Eden. Adam reflects on his lost friendship with God; Adam views the cross event; a conversation of God the Father with God the Son in which they look forward to renewed friendship with humanity.

Also connected with Edward Munch's painting "Golgotha"; the refrain in the poem picks up the differing responses of the crowd around Jesus' cross. Pic can be viwed on Olga's Gallery website.

Stanza One: Daybreak (Fall from Glory)
(based on
The Bible
, Genesis chapter 3)
 Adam:
It was just there – the voice,The voice, the voice,The voice, leading me, tempting me onWell beyond the boundaries.He was my friend, once.I think he is still, butThe shared closeness gone.You see, the voiceTempted me into territory not mine,Away from him, my friend, my God,And into hitherto unknown places.I look at
her 
with different eyes now.I thought her beautiful not so long agoOnce she was partner, now she is rival.Once she was close, now she is distantLike God:Distanced.How I wish…But time is time and won’t roll back.And, rolling inexorably onwardsIt bears the universal consequences of Pride.But Time also rolls forwardTowards the day of reconciliation,Towards the day of the cross.And towards a different voiceRequiring a different response.
 And some laughed, And some deferred  And some believed.
 
Stanza Two: The Heat of the Day
 Adam continues…
 There was no violence in my world once,All was goodAll was peaceUntil that shudderingAs creation slammed into reverse.So how has it come to this?Systematised flogging, shouting, crowding,Casually dicing with death?One man mirrors me,One I was created to mirror,Taken…Led away…Crucified…Taken, broken, given.
׃םידוהיה ךלמ ירצנה עושי (
Yeshua Natsoret Melech HaYehudim)
Iesus Nazarenus rex Iudaeorum
ιησους ο ναζωραιος ο βασιλευς των ιουδαιων (
Iesous ho nazarenos ho baseleus ton ioudaion)
Jesus of Nazareth, King.
 And some laughed, And some deferred  And some believed.
