Pear Sweet

Vintage Words


I used to believe everyone

had fruit that was sweeter,

more ripe, and juicier

than mine.


Such belief took away

the pleasures associated

with picking the pear,

washing it, taking

the first bite.


Now, I accept with all

my tastebuds that anyone's

pear may be sweeter,

but there is no better way

to taste the world than

through a mouthful of fruit

swallowed and savored

in personal triumph

and individual joy.
