    A poem by peter ruellan
    In this leafy orchard is a sparrow
    A sparrow whose songs are the sunrise
    They take me into the light
    To heavenly places, above
    and to the place where lovers talk to the gods
    Hello wonderful, I say
    luminous with solitude, basking in gold,
    and to a paradise where Adam and Eve dwell
    Thank goodness I'm not Adam or else mankind
    would never forgive me for always sinning.
    O tiny apple of amazement
    O simple beginnings of myself.
    I am leaving; I am leaving, my friend.
    ---- Peter Ruellan 2012
