After Eden



After Eden, all that remained of the Trees of Life and Knowledge, was a single cutting from the end of a branch


This was taken by Adam and Eve, just before they left the garden

As the last remnant of their former idyll


But, over time, neither of them could recall whether the cutting came from the tree of Life or the tree of Knowledge


And, as such, they could not agree what they should do with it now


Should they treat it like Life . . . And preserve it between them for as long as possible?


Or, should they treat it like Knowledge . . . And plant it so that it could bear fruit for future generations ?. . . (Though that would mean them having to give up it's possession for themselves)


.

.

I do not know which option they chose in the end

But i wonder . . . What would you do?
