The Ripening

The Ripening
By Kay Crista
With my thanks to LibbyAnn for sending this to me!

This Living
has softened the hard fruit

of my being

Everyday, tenderness
claims more of me

taking me holy

into ripeness

Let me not
fall from the branch

ripe but untasted

Rather, let the Beloved
pluck me in ripeness

and pierce me with His bite

Releasing the juicy
fullness of my life

to run down His arm

like tears of gratitude,

like tears of devotion

But,
if fall I must

untasted

melting into the earth

Let that nourishing decay
be my devotion

spreading out in a pool

of returning

the essential elements
of my being.
