Living in Eden

By Michelle Garren Flye

What if

God didn’t cast Adam and Eve

Out of the garden of Eden?

What if

He just stretched it

To make room for their family?

What if

The beach you walk on,

The sunsets you watch,

The flowers that bloom,

The oceans we sail,

The mountains we admire…

What if

This is what is left of the garden?

What if

You already live in Eden?
