  • By Ada Aharoni
    Jul 22, 2018
    The new book of poems by Ada Aharoni, "Toward a Horizon of Hope," is a peak in her poetic career. It is a powerful, moving, lyrical and thought-provoking collection. Ada Aharoni is known throughout the world as the “Poet of Peace and Love.” The present book causes the reader to feel both an emotional and thought-provoking turmoil. In a rich, direct and convincing language, Ada describes the deep meaning of Peace, on the one hand, and on the other hand, the absurd and destructive force in the concept of "war". War, for Ada is a personal enemy, that should be eliminated, as she describes in her poem: "I Want to Kill You War." Ada presents Peace and Love in their deepest meanings and at their various levels, including the painful level of the fragility and end of life. The poems that show this most, are the moving ones devoted to her dear husband, Haim, Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Technion, and her daughter Tali, founder and director of... More > "Dorot", who was loved and admired by everyone. Both loved peace with all their hearts and rejected fanaticism, war, violence and hatred. Ada proves that poetry is one of the best tools for spreading a message of peace among people and nations. Poetry can penetrate deep into the heart of human beings, on both sides, and to soften and even erase the wounds and misunderstandings between enemies that have piled up during the years of hatred and war. One of the main messages of this book is that women, who create life, are the best ally of peace, as is shown by the powerful and revolutionary poem: “Peace Is Woman and A Mother.” In the part of the book titled "Women’s Vision", we find some of the most amazing and enthralling poems, that show women are clearly the Captains of the journey “Toward a Horizon of Hope."
