bowl of pomegranates
I have always been in love with pomegranates.
But California startled me with their prolific effusement
How could holy spheres of fruit
flourish in the suburbs?
On this side of the Atlantic (the other side of the Pacific)?
Their seeds are holy jewels
And 10
And 3.
A mirror of a whole tree
Embedded in its skin.
How could Eve have not tasted it?
It was both fruit and tree,
And the future.
