Fruit

We now consider
no fruit forbidden,
no knowledge sacred,
no secret worthy
of remaining hidden.
There is low hanging fruit,
accessible to all,
within easy reach,
but it is our glory,
and our downfall,
to always search
for that just beyond
our grasp.

    Excellent…

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
