pear atrium (3 part tanka)

Image

oh immortal pear

magnetic towards all nature

to lengthen our lives

we will never divide it

our bond is unbreakable

within the aching

como los peces nadan

open up the heart

taste the freedom of a choice

sipping the nectar of Love

so drink until quenched

tis naturally Spiritual

sharing desires

ceasing the hunger within

as we bite into the skin
