    Poem of the Month, June 2013: The Poet’s Motive


    By Ada Aharoni

    The poet’s goal
    and ultimate motive
    is to clear a space
    of luminous beauty
    that takes our breath away
    under the shaded skies
    of the roaring battlefields
    of the world

    And to plant there
    the peaceful seeds
    of his rounded words
    with flying wings
    of his poetic muse
    multicolored visions
    of blossoming
    Trees of Peace
    bearing the fruitful fruit
    of Universal
    and Love


    Spanish translation by Maria Cristina Azcona for PAZIFLAC, the South American branch of IFLAC:


    Por Ada Aharoni

    El objetivo del poeta
    y la razón que lo asombra
    es despejar un espacio
    de belleza luminosa
    que quita el aliento
    bajo el cielo de sombra
    de los campos de batalla rugientes
    del mundo

    Y para plantar allí
    las semillas de paz
    de sus palabras redondas
    volando con alas
    de su musa poética
    que conjuran
    visiones multicolores
    de árboles de la Paz
    que llevan el fruto fecundo
    de Amor y Cordialidad
