fruit moment

thinking over the last few days
about the difference between success
and fruitfulness .........
with success comes strength, control
perhaps respectability
fame ..
fruit on the other hand
is produced through vulnerability
a child is conceived
in vulnerability
community is the fruit born
through shared brokenness
intimacy is the fruit born
through touching one another's wounds
success might bring momentary happiness
but it is the taste of fruit
that brings sustaining joy
