THE CORE

 

Surrounded

By luscious flesh

Inviting

And beautiful

 

And skin

Red

Tender

And pleasing

 

It is the flesh

That is sought, seen

And tasted

By all

 

Pleasing to the eye

A pleasure to behold

Hanging

With all of its kind

 

In the sun

Moonlight

And seasons

Of our world

 

Underneath

Luscious flesh

Covered with tender skin

Lies the core

 

Insulated

Hidden

Embraced

By - tender and tasteful - flesh

 

Tough

Tasteless

And full of seeds

Of future life

 

The core of the future

Present

And past

Fruits

 

Is often discarded

Never found

Rotting

Within – soon to be - decaying flesh

 

Seeds withering

To a slow and lingering

Final

Death

 

Often realized

Found

Nourished, developed and strengthened

Within temporal body

 

Until with full life force

Taking root and seizing

Time, truth

Energy and light

 

Of perpetual life
