Prompt 64: Tolerance


Thanks to Gina of Kilauea Poetry for this week's prompt, tolerance. Thanks to her also for the photo above and the poem below.


"Against Such Things"...
 
Virtue n.) Specifically, moral excellence; integrity of character; purity of soul; performance of duty... 


T olerance..from the top of the sea saw I hear you call- your hair in mid air looking down on me- 

O h tolerance, I say squinting.. is no virtue at all.. just patience, watered down ya see.. 

L evel..isn't as lovely sounding- but, it's not a one way street..good for me.. oh but not for you- 

E asy now, while I'm hopping..my knees are bent- but I'll be hoping.. you'll be hearing me too & 

R emember, don't ya run out in the street...and well

A lign..just happens to come to mind.. cause all my thoughts get crossed-
 
N ow a plumb line's best for tracking, as the wind could blow anywhere 

C ause we..we won't have a foundation..like the board that goes under me & you? 

E asier if it's a two way street..and remember, don't ya take candy from strangers- 

But the fruit of the Spirit is- 
love, 
joy, 
peace, 
patience, 
kindness, 
goodness, 
faithfulness, 
gentleness, 
self-control; against such things there is no law -Ga 5: 22
