Precious Fruit


What Is this? A fruit of the of the Soul, like a casserole baked, in the human heart like a cake, made through a lifetime of moments, like fine atonements. With time that is given, like a vapor of smoke, that is hidden in a cloak, that suddenly spoke. Precious fruits like gentleness such a simple word that is seldom stirred, but you know it, when it's heard; Kindness is preferred and is sometimes shown to a baby bird; Goodness a moral excellence of character, a reference to the persona, perhaps someone like Jonah. Self control is nothing less that taking the best of the worse events, without a reaction to preserve one's own attractions; Faithfulness the ability to stay loyal through a lifetime of toil, like a friend who stands through thick and through thin; like a dog called man's best friend. Patience to wait, to stand to act not so hastily and must be done courageously; Peace a moment of understanding when faced with someone who is demanding; Meekness a humility of mind, not to act like you are so divine, Joy a state of happiness when faced with times of nastiness. Love a warm feeling of affection or devotion, and not a conditional notion. When these comes to maturity it will make life here on earth full of purity and security this is a surety.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
