Things gone perfect

   Bosc Pear

Sometimes a simple thing can trigger complexities which seem out of reach of my words.  
The pear does this for me.  Perfect in form, its ergonomics seem made for the human hand to hold yet mimic the whole body.  Perfect skin, just enough to protect its moist delicate flesh but easily pierced with a bite and without a strong bitter taste.  I would have thought this fruit the undoing of Eve and wonder if biblical scholars got the translation wrong.  I do have a hard time with the negative saying "things gone pear shaped", it seems perfect to me.
