Pomegranate/Granatas/Granātābols/Granaatõun/Garnet

I didn’t really know what I was doing

Climbing

Over a

wall

beneath

The Acropolis.

 

Greek police were

Shouting at me

As I hid

The pomegranate

In my rucksack.

Granatas

Aš tikrai nežinojo, ką darau

Laipiojimas

Virš

siena

po žeme

Akropolis.

 

Graikijos policija buvo

Šaukė prieš mane

Aš paslėpiau

Granatas

Mano kuprinėje. (Lithuania)

Granātābols –

Es īsti nezināju, ko es daru

Kāpšana

Vairāk nekā a

siena

zem tā

Akropole.

 

Grieķijas policija bija

Kliedz man

Kā es paslēpju

Granātābols

Manā mugursomā. (Latvia)

Granaatõun –

Ma ei teadnud, mida ma tegin

Ronimine

Üle a

sein

allpool

Acropolis.

 

Kreeka politsei oli

Karjub mind

Nagu ma varjatud

Granaatõun

Minu seljakotta.  (Estonia)

I did not know what I was doing

Climbing

More than a

below

Acropolis

 

The Greek police were

Grieve me

How to hide

Garnet

My backpack

I’m not sure who will have scrolled-down this far; waded through the painful Google translate – more transliterate;

This, I have written on the back of my blog yesterday about Yiddish and Baltic languages;

Interesting to see the pomegranate transform into a garnet; they have a similarity – both red and round; different texture though.

Acropolis has remained consistent, but then, that is Greek for you – it has lasted three thousand years, why shouldn’t it outlive the computers?

Computers can take us some of the way; they can speed-up, augment reality, enhance experience, minimise effort, but, at the end, when the processors have all powered-down and the sun has set, we are left with the vulnerability of human nature; the delicacy of touch or scent not smell, glimmer of the eye;

Let us appreciate for a little longer who we are and what we do.

Genug.
