Bright red
And beautiful
A delicious fruit
From heaven
Mentioned in the holy books

Its fabulous creation
With ruby-like beauty
Within the layers
Appear as honeycomb

Nature’s jewels
These sweet juicy little seeds
Spurt zest
Into our mouths

A food for longevity
Full of fiber, antioxidants
And vitamins
Healing mankind
For ages
