BLACK AND WHITE WEDNESDAY #150 - AUTUMN'S FINEST FRUIT

Apples On Tree
- Apple Of My Eye -
And when you crush an apple with your teeth, say to it in your heart:
Your seeds shall live in my body,
And the buds of your tomorrow shall blossom in my heart,
And your fragrance shall be my breath,
And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons.”
- Khalil Gibran

  4. ...And in the autumn, when you gather the grapes of your vineyard for the winepress, say in you heart, "I to am a vinyard, and my fruit shall be gathered for the winepress, And like new wine I shall be kept in eternal vessels..." One of my favorites Rosa, prose and illuminating image:) Thank you so much for sharing...
