TITLE: Pear 3/3/18

If I am a tree
My roots go deep in hard ground
My trunk wide with years
My branches barren
What have I to show for the years?
Taking up precious soil where
A stronger tree might produce something worthwhile
instead, had it been cut down long ago
But I remain
Until a single pear grows from a single blossom
A last chance at fertility
To manifest the Creator’s generative nature
Is it worth a single pear?
God knows what can come from just one of its seeds;
A word, a divine encounter
What one single pear/pair can produce
