Sweet Fruit

old plum’s roots are firm
even in the late spring snow
loyal fruit is sweet

My response to Carpe Diem #1330 loyalty

Today our prompt is a quote from Manuscript Found in Accra, which Chèvrefeuille describes as a novel full of wisdom and spirituality, very similar to Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet:

‘Loyalty has its roots in respect and respect is the fruit of Love, and Love drives out the demons of the imagination – which distrust everything and everyone – and, instead, returns purity to our gaze’. (Source: Manuscript Found in Accra – Paulo Coelho)
