March 11: Fruit

Fruit of our Labors

Felicitous
Ruminations
Utterly
Inviting
Truth.

March 11th is “Johnny Appleseed Day.”  John Chapman, known as Johnny Appleseed, was responsible for introducing apple trees to many regions of the western frontier. Reflect on fruit.

      It was the best I could do and actually have something to offer today! I'm a graduate student and in the final throes of the quarter.

    In the Garden of Eden the fruit was ripe and sweet, There were trees of all kinds with fruit to eat, Eve took a bite and then decided to share, The fruit from a tree she knew she shouldn't dare, Adam also decided this fruit he should partake, All this on the advice of a smooth talking snake, The fruit that was eaten was considered very good, So don't blame the fruit for being misunderstood, The words that were consumed changed their fate, The fruit we still love, it's the lies we hate.

      Very lovely rumination on Adam and Eve! It's funny, but the line "The words that were consumed changed their fate" would be equally true as "The Word that was consumed changed their fate." Nice!

      I don't know what an end quarter is, but it sounds stressfdul. Bon courage! Nice accrostic.

        End of quarter. I'm in graduate school. So one chapter is closing (and it's a cliff hanger!) and another is beginning. :-)
