Poem: Pomegranate

imagesIf I could eat a jewel

Would it taste like this?

like these luscious seeds,

That stain my hands and delight my tongue?


And what if I could plant a ruby

in my heart?

What would it grow?

And could I eat the fruit?


And then, if I could touch your soul

just once… like this…

What would you say?

And who would you be afterwards?


(inspired by the poetry of Pablo Neruda)
