Footprints in the Windsm # 1152–Bounteous payoff before the work?

Footprints in the Windsm # 1152

The street dervish sees the redbud tree, the white flowers on the pear tree, and sees through them to the fruit in the fall. But what of the redbud he asks: it bears no fruit but seed pods, and its flowers are but for a few days. Its flowers come first with a promise and a fulfillment before the long work of the summer. What is going on here?, asks the dervish. Nature giving the beauty, the bounteous payoff before the work? Smiling he sets to dancing….

Please pass it on.
