Fruit

Light Through the Forest

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5: 22-23
Gifts may come and gifts may go, but life is best when all
Like trees bear fruit of joy to share in peace and self-control.
Taste how patient kindness is 
With love and goodness, gentle bliss
As faithfulness through righteousness fulfills the ancient law.

Linked to dVerse Meeting the Bar where Bjorn is hosting with the theme of lists as the guiding source of a poem.

  1. Imagine if everyone used this Galatians verse as their mantra! We could have such a world of peace and harmony. I liked your words “taste how patient kindness is, with love and goodness, gentle bliss”. So be it!

    Yes, the ancient law through divine wisdom is already within the framework. Your insistence with a philosophical
    slant here is perfect, Frank!
