fruit

20140807-091054-33054482.jpg

the tomato is as high as the second stick
no tomatoes in sight
all bushy and gigantic
but no fruit
I don’t mind much
it’s a beautiful green
for my little balcony
but it makes me wonder
will it give me any goodness?
any product
for the fried green tomatoes
I’ve been hankerin’ for?
It feels like another lesson
I’ve read
about fig trees
and no fruit
eventually will it be hewn down
and thrown in the fire?
(or at least tossed in the trash bin?)
Today I hope to bear fruit
bare fruit
naked truth
harvested and shared freely
abundant and juicy
sweet to the taste
clean and ready for eating
creating happy smiles
as the juice runs down
chins and elbows
right smack dap
into the thirsty hearts
receiving
the goodness
delivered
the promise
delivered
the miracle
delivered
the love
delivered
the hope
delivered
the healing
delivered
the word
made flesh
delivered
among us
now
and for
ever
