Published Dec 2018 in Red Wheelbarrow

One of three winning poems in the 2018 Red Wheelbarrow Poetry Prize, judged by Naomi Shihab Nye. Nye comments: “Tasty poem! I loved the sound sense here, assonance and alliteration, the pleasure of speaking, and saying, even holding a pomegranate, the narrator's identification with the fruit—exhilarating and delicious.” This poem is dedicated to my late grandmother (Po Po), who grew pomegranates on her balcony in Chongqing, China.

Many thanks to my dad, Richard Qiang Li, for the lovely watercolor illustrations.
