Truth Took Shape From That of A Pear

Truth in its ever-changing form,

to nourish a malnourished frame,

 

took shape from that of a pear

with tender thoughts for skin, and seeds

deep within its core.  The pear freed

from the bonds of leaves, a tree’s care

 

no longer taken, to the ground,

then into child’s palm, without sound.

 

To a child, found with many smiles

and hungry lips.  Taken to mouth

of hope, swallowed between white teeth.

(Witnessed by warm tender freckles).

 

This one pear fulfilled child’s hunger,

to taste the fruit, the dull color,

 

the sweet taste, syrup and honey-

like, rich as a father’s giving,

pure as a mother’s loving

grace.  This child’s nursery rhyme at play.
