    Poem of the Month, May 2015: Life is a Pomegranate

    Life is a Pomegranate. Or, as they say in Greek: Η ζωή είναι ένα ρόδι.

    This is a Greek translation of Ada Aharoni’s poem Life is a Pomegranate, translated by writer and poet Zacharoula Gaitanaki.

    Life is a pomegranate


    By Ada Aharoni

    Life is a Pomegranate, my friend
    A world of Plenty
    Full of juicy ruby grains –
    If you search for them.

    When you find them
    Taste them fully
    One by one
    Long before
    They become –
    No more.

    See more translations by Zacharoula Gaitanaki of Ada Aharoni’s poems.
