At 71, A Reflection on Luke 13:6-9

March 7, 2013

—∞—

No fruit
After three years
No figs on the tree
Give it another year
A fourth quarter
Another period to express its being
 
Life’s fourth quarter
For many, a final period
Something is being asked
More is required, expected
But three and a half quarters
Have already passed
 
Fatigue is present
Yet must be ignored
Fruitless time is over
Unrecognized, but over
Something is being asked
More is required
 
Not more activity,
Better results
Enough is being done,
Just needs to be better
Richer
More rewarding, more loving
 
Something is being asked
More is required
