You are the fruit
Fallen from the tree
The tree is your life
Now separate from you
You have found the earth
The foundation of a new life
The memory and lessons remain only in the flesh of fallen fruit
Now they decay
The flesh dissolves to release the knowledge lived
To fertilise the seed as it enters the earth
The flesh must rot
Must putrefy and dissolve
To purify and revolve
The fruit can not escape the dissolution of its transformation
All must return to seed
Only the essence can remain
The essence must enter the dark
To crack and break open
Then in the black
It will climb
To the light
Of the new life
The fruit must love its decay
The seed must love its death
To know its life
