Two Pods and a Pea

Two Pods and a Pea

two pods and a pea
while the others went missing
swallowed one by one

Years ago, a well-known author/speaker who is a close friend used to tell everyone that we were “two pods and a pea”. Everyone would laugh and ask us, “What happened to the other peas?” Or, “What does that mean “two pods and a pea?”

Of course, two peas meant that we were odd together — he was bald with a heavy foreign accent and a perfectly fit body (Mr Natural Universe twice). I was rolly polly round with soft hair and face. One pea meant we were the same — our laugh, our spirit, our inner joy and great sense of play.

 As for the other peas, read the haiku for that one 😉
