A Card in a Shop Window

Seen among the Lost Pet cards: Have you seen them? Two lost faiths, much loved and greatly missed: A fluffy kitten, black and white -- answers to the name of adam (meaning earth -- pristine, of course). Also, a snow-white puppy -- comes when you call eve (life- giving - as in the biosphere of all life, everywhere). When found, they'll likely be together. Please search the garden and the potting shed, beneath the apple tree, etc.

Alas, I think the searchers should search OUTSIDE of the garden.....far away from that apple tree.

Brian Miller said...

smiles...great symbolism in this....and creatively presented sir...i would hope we dont give up that search....

Tommaso Gervasutti said...

Short poem that leaves a vast universe around it. The longing for a quest in the air. And yes, I too would hope we don't give up the search.

Moving, compassionate, phenomenal writing, Dave.
Yes..and the search continues...

I'm with Claudia, and would go further and hope that they are not found.

I love your play on words.
Adam and Eve most likely to be found together beneath the apple tree!
Delightfully amusing, yet moving at the same time.
Love it :)
