Pandora's Box

the greek myths hold
that all the miseries,
out of the folly of pandora
were thus brought upon humans

ensnared by the god’s traps
unheeded prometheus’ counsel
land of all-time spring
daffodils, hibiscuses, daisies—
all growing, not in flower farms
rivers flowing with milk and nectar
oak trees filled with acorns
mountain strawberries

all these, good pilgrim,

but for every trouble,
the myth says,
there is hope
to soothe human woes

Yes, there is always hope. I love that you end your poem on that note. Oh to have mountain strawberries!!
