May you find ample nourishment

In unforeseen places

And may your palate discern

True potential

Even amidst

Prickly spines.

May the sun warm your heart

Like a rain in the desert

To ripen fruits so refined

That they feed

All your needs

And your soul

Once again

Realigns.

    • They are called “Sabres” in Israel, and they are delicious. You can find them growing wild in many areas, sometimes at the side of the road. They are mostly eaten raw (though one does need to know how to pick and peel without getting the nasty little spines embedded in one’s skin …).
