Fruit now

This post was lost in the Crocapocalypse – I’m reposting it with its original date.

I had a reminder from a friend that our ‘long now’ still includes right now.

We plant seeds, we grow to fruitfulness – and we enjoy the fruit that’s here for us now.

We often struggle to do one or the other, and you’re not flourishing if you’re not enjoying fruit in the moment.

William Carlos Williams is just about the best on this:

This is Just to Say

I have eaten

the plums

that were in

the icebox



and which

you were probably

saving

for breakfast



Forgive me

they were delicious

so sweet

and so cold


William Carlos Williams
