One Fruit Above All The Rest

The Tomato of Desire

How does the pure tomato grow upon its twirling vine/ among the garden plants green and red sublime/ beneath the heat of Father Sun, the bath of Mother Rain/growing plump and red that we may eat of it some day and juicily exclaim,/”Oh Tomato from the  garden, sweet, I love your languid succulence your luxury of taste/ and our Maker give my thanks profound whene’er of You I’ve ate.”

Take, for instance, this below to the left.  “Oh, a simple tomato,” I hear you comment.  But more than that!  It is a tomato above all tomatoes.

The Tomato of Ponderous Weight

It shines and glistens in itself, a metaphor of life, a sign of

The Tomato of Desire

The Tomato of the Promise of Plenty


Known as many things to many people.


It exists to prove itself  more than mere tomato, but TOMATO!

It is Phenomenon pure!
