Before Genesis Chapter 3


April 19 – National Poetry Month Challenge

God created the heavens and the earth
before Genesis chapter 3
the Lord God formed man from the dust
before Genesis chapter 3
He created the Garden of Eden
and set man to have dominion
over the garden and the animals
before Genesis chapter 3.

Then along came woman
toward chapter 2’s end
created from the rib of Adam, the man
they were naked,
not embarrassed
nor ashamed in each other’s presence
they were as God created them
in His likeness and image.

And then came chapter 3
where sin entered in
enslaving those once free
to a life filled with sin
But,
God knew that we would make this mistake
and so a way made He
before Genesis chapter 3.
