Succulent, Gritty Fleshed Pear With Dripping Sweetness

A pair, pare or pear…

Let’s start with the definition of pair: “Two corresponding persons or items, similar in form or function and matched or associated.” An example of this would be two passionate people who are married, engaged, or dating. Yeah, I added the passionate part in there because if you’re not going to be passionate about the relationship, why be in it?

Then there’s pare which means “to remove the outer covering or skin of with a knife or similar instrument” which is what you could do to juicy, organic white peaches with fair flesh.

However, I’m not thinking of a pair or paring. I have another word in mind.

When I take the time in the evening to sit silently on the couch with the sun streaming through the window, I find peace as the hustle of the day evaporates.


 
Of course, to make the moment even better today, I decided to eat a pear.
 


 
As I held the ripe pear in my hand, the fattened lobe felt heavy and full of juice.
 


 
The deliciously cold sweet juice…
 


 
almost burst through the skin.
 


 
Each succulent bite of the…
 


 
spherical fruit…
 


 
kept producing dripping sweetness…
 


 
from the gritty flesh.
 


 
The white pulp barely held onto the core…
 


 
as I took one relaxing bite after the next.
 


 
The big bites of fruit filled my mouth…
 


 
and the sun warmed my face…
 


 
as the day drifted into evening…
 


 
and the pear disappeared into a sweet memory.
