Artist's Description

Trio of Pears
by my love Doug Gustafson

They come alone but often share as these three
A common mount on a nimble limb
Weight finally winning
As they pull and soon tumble
To the earth and new beginning

Oh these three, bred to share a modest season
Of so little command
Until gazed upon settled in dust and roots
And how they start to shine in glistening sun
As if all of light and life give them salutes

As trios go, they seem content
To wallow quietly under the painter’s spell
Brushes emulating sight
While yellows and greens furnish such brilliance
Giving the master not the slightest plight

For this trio bulges with delight
For those who see more than fruits and food
As they take the charismatic stage
Waiting to see their verdant splendor frozen
By the unending blossom of this blonde sage

For she sees these pairs
A bit of folly but so much more
Her eyes agaze with an awesome power
That took her trio to heights of splendor
Giving their beauty due for eternal hours
