Another Look at the Notion of Wealth

in the silence of a forest
or crash of a surf
in the crackling of a fire
or wild cat's purr
find new inspirations

rich are those
who touch
the core of ancient cedars
or hairs of bamboos in spring

fortunate are those
who watch
the dance of glowing charcoals
or shimmering whiteness of lofty peaks

this world was created
with so much wealth –
let's share it wisely
& protect its health
