    Writing a haiku for this week’s theme — very nice! 🙂 You’ve told a story in so a few words, which leaves room for a lot of interpretations (which is a good thing). Well done, Becca! 🙂

    Seduction is so playful… Why dooming Eve and generations that followed just because of it?

      Seabell – I am not real sure of the answer there …. but I gather with all the beauty and bounty that was offered … why wasn’t that enough? There was only one tiny request … In this instance … No really meant NO!!!


  17. Boy doomed is right, Becca! 😦 Awesome Haiku!


  18. I do love that picture and the poem…really well done. Haven’t put a poem up yet will have to think of one…just really liked this!
