A Peel Like Yours

A peel like yours

leaves nothing to the

imagination. It reveals

your soul-shape,

what you wear

under your game face

on market day. My

heart sees underneath,

to the freshly squeezed

fruit, the way you

drip with flavour

and leach nutrition

and satisfy my

thirst for

transparency.

 

 

Grow Patience

Grow patience when you can’t grow fruit,

and soul and heart will follow suit

as character rears heaven’s taste

in disposition wisdom-laced.

This apple tree waits patiently for the days of frost to end. ┬áSo too, I will wait for the blessings to follow soul’s winter season…
