Taste of Pear

"It isn't fully ripe" - crunch!

Bounteous fruit, a pear.

Red or green or yellow.

Imperfect skin, not rough,

just dotted with brown.

Mostly firm but it gives in under a thumb.

---

"It isn't fully ripe" - crunch!

---

Chomp and chew and swallow

and chop and chew -

and savor the flavor

that follows the crunch,

that tastes like memories -

---

faint and sweet and wet.

Yes, this is a poem about a pear. Seems a little random or odd but my favorite thing is poems that take the most mundane things and turn them into a beautiful piece of work. I like this poem and all its randomness - I hope you do too!
