person holding red strawberry

I watch her walk out to the garden,

smiling, with hat in hand—

bend down to touch the flowers, mark progress.

Early strawberries peek through, nod

on slender coils, proving soil,

tended, can be good, even noble.

Bear fruit.

Good fruit comes from good soil. Our RECEPTIVITY to all the good things God has poured into us over the years, matters. It adds up. We do and will bear good fruit. And there is a real sense of perfection, of completion, of satisfaction in this. Watch for it. Tend it. Be open to it.

Here’s to more poetry in the world we love.
