Fallen Apples

Fallen apples

Fallen world

Routed plans

Out they’re hurled

Banishment fueled

By cherishing Heart

Consenting their stay

Would bar a new start

Flashing swords guard

Tree of Life

Preventing loss

for husband and wife

New Adam arrives

Upon cursed scene

Conquering death

Firstborn of redeemed.


If Adam and Eve had been allowed to eat from the Tree of Life, they would have lived eternally lost without hope of redemption.  It is Love that removed them from the garden of Eden.  It was Love that came down to earth as a baby to bridge the gap between fallen mankind and a holy Creator.   I don’t know about you – but I wouldn’t want to have lived here, as is, eternally!  I’ve got my eyes on an up and coming celestial neighborhood…

  1. Your poem opened my eyes to an aspect of Adam and Eve’s lives that I somehow never grasped, for as many times as I’ve read it: had they not been banished from the Garden, they would have lived eternally without redemption! I’ve got my eyes on that same “neighborhood”.

    The apple in the picture also has such a unique red stripe!

    1. Thank you for your visit! I heard this in a sermon, years ago, and I loved the idea that God was motivated by love, not anger. Another reminder that God is love. Yes, He hates sin; but, He does not hate us!

    1. I often wonder what the trees and flowers will look like there? Do you think CS. Lewis and his buddies will have new books for us to read? Plus all the musicians and their music…

  2. Just gorgeous . . .all of it! 🙂 And you have me thinking about our celestial neighborhood. Loved that! God bless you, Wendy, as you keep us looking up and for our Jesus.

    1. I wish I could share some of our neighbor’s apples with you, Debbie. They are the best ones I’ve ever had. Sometimes I ponder about the types of fruit that will be in Heaven.
