No guile in the banana,
what you see is what you eat,
raw-green or over-ripe brown,
these yellowing sickle-shaped
truth-tellers grow in
encouraging bunches atop
waving stalks of faithfulness.
Author’s Notes: This poem appears on my poetry blog in a series I wrote on the fruits of the spirit. See the poem at: http://pocketpoems.info/index/fruits-of-the-spirit-faithfulness
Sally's first publication for children is "Where's My Hug?" a lift-the-flap board book published by WorthyKids/Ideals. Buy it for a child you love.
