The Quickening
could be a novel, a movie, a psalm, a proverb.
It is as ancient as Adam and as quivering as Eve.
It is the light that draws our wing and burns our breath.

Ah...the quickening.
It is our life, and our death.

it's a great word, isn't it?
unless it's a woman describing sex with her man
and i don't think eve was all that quivery
for one thing, i think they were smokin weed in the garden and the munchies got em!
but seriously, yes,
the coming alive
awakening to new
tis good
