Aromatic gardens of exotic delights
A taste of pleasure through the nights
Apples falling from fruited trees
Ripe for the plucking in a summer breeze
A maiden journey into nights of pleasure
To the heights of love of self surrender
Of Adam leaving himself for the sake of Eve
A taste of the fruits of love to receive.
A longing for centuries for the life of man
A taste from the Garden since time began
A feeling to treasure and never go away
A heavenly mandate of nature to obey
The soft lips of Eve and the soothing smile
And the gates of love on Pleasure Isle
A place that keeps itself in the heart
And remains 'til death to then depart
A taste of pleasure is how it all started
A bite of the apple as the self departed
A journey into the secrets of love
A finding of the laws from above

Thanx Nelson. I just got over a terrible writer's block. I was afraid it would never go away. I had to force myself to write this one. I'm so glad you liked it. It means a lot to me.

A taste of love for better or for worse that made the world go round and round and many times tipsy but overall celebratory. Virtuous we become, the fruit of love like you said opened the door to a “love journey, the laws from above”.

Another inspiring poem many from you. Love it . Thanks Robert.
