Pomegranate is a story about a person finding a moment of enlightenment through some not so ordinary pomegranate seeds. As the poem evolves, so does our understanding of how this revelation may indeed be just the drunken excitement of a circus goer!

There are five groupings of four stanzas each, having four lines each. There is a final sixth stanza also with four lines to wrap up the story. That makes twenty one stanzas total, or eighty four lines in all. The last word of each line rhymes with the same rhyme, but a different word each time, for eighty four different words having the same rhyme. This poem was written to be read at a quicker pace, and the specific emphasis of words within has resulted in capitalization of words or portions of words to give the reader direct access to the emphasis desired.

The structure of five groupings of four stanzas each, having four lines each (with a final sixth stanza), has been broken up into six chapter breaks with sub-chapters for each four line stanza. Each stanza has had its lines split-apart in order to preserve the intent (the pacing) of each line, and thus each line may be given its own page; there may be instances, however, where managing the evolution of the poem in your mind, some lines have been split into multiple pages, or, multiple lines of a stanza remain on the same page (making it so a chapter is not necessarily equal to the count of lines of a stanza).
