Seasons of Growth

Unknown photographer. Would like to credit her/him.

It is amazing:
the shape and the colour of a bud and blossom
indicate the shape and the colour of the fruit.
The plant follows a blueprint
that in all seasons of growth
you can recognize
an apple, a cherry, a pear, a rose.
Look deeply, and you will see it,
that blueprint.

Can this translate to a human being?
The ancestors believed that you could see
the most useful / fruit stage of a human
in his or her youth / blossom.
Recall that yogis advise
to get a hold of
depression, rage, all lesser traits, addiction
as soon as possible,
because the patterns progress
to their consequences
in the same way
as purity, peace, loving kindness, joy
mature
to their fruit state.
Look deeply at the blueprints
in your life and in your self.
Starve your weak points.
Feed your good and high traits.
Let your blueprint grow
and shape its most harmonious,
most delicious,
most beautiful yield.
