Black Pearls

They lay secure in a sweet bell

Like pearl protected in sea shell

 

 

In orange red hangings with rind

They hold on firm with strings even in wind

 

 

They resemble huge cannon balls

Little in real, wrapped in watery shawls

 

 

As dark as night, as black as my hair

They grow in fruity womb in despair

 

 

They are exposed with a deep incision

Resting safe like valued possession

 

 

Smooth like precious black beads

Shiny black pearls are the Papaya Seeds
