Es la mañana llena de tempestad
en el corazon del verano.
Como pañuelos blancos de adios viajan las nubes,
el viento las sacude con sus viajeras manos.
Innumerable corazon del viento
latiendo sobre nuestro silencio enamorado.
“Es la Mañana Llena” de Pablo Neruda
I got these two beautiful corazones ("hearts") at the San Sebastian Del Pepino farmer's market in Puerto Rico. I was mesmerized by their color and beautiful heart shapes.
The delicious corazon fruit is native to the tropics in much of the Americas. In English it's known as the "Custard apple” or “Bullocks-Heart”. Their scientific name is Annona reticulata L., and they belong to the anonáceas fruit family. Its lush pulp has a sweet custard consistency with little black seeds. They are the size of a large apple
I kept these two in my car to let them ripen. By the time I left to the airport on my return flight they were ready. I put them in my bag but was prevented from flying back with them at the security gate.
I was upset to say the least, but I asked them if I could sit there and eat them. So that's how I finally brought them back with me. I hadn't had these since I was a kid on my grandparent's farm. Boy were they good...... :~)>
