Fruta

Hunched over at the waist with a stuffed wool blanket tied to her back,

she moved slowly, yet gracefully, down the cobblestone road in Ollantaytambo, Peru.

She ran her hand along a stone building to stabilize herself and looked my way.

She smiled and pointed to her back, and said, “fruta.”

She had a load of fruit on her back.

She graciously allowed me to photograph her,

and when I look at this image, I think, such beautiful sweetness,

just like fruta.
