Genesis - Ina Kontvainytė

When I was Eve a hundred million years ago
You laughed
That same laugh,
Tolerant, and amused, delighted I was Woman
Pleased at my frailties, yet confused by each,
You bit into a peach and smiled
That same smile. Grey eyes caressing
The primeval world, and me.
Oh, I was jubilant to be alive that newborn day!
Still...I remember
One faint darkening cloud
On the horizon
That first afternoon.

Ina Kontvainytė (born 1941) Lithuania (now lives in USA)
