whispers

adapted from chinese idioms

give every blade of grass its dew

a leaf is sown, a leaf is reaped
a leaf, a blade, a seed, a love is sown,
grass, for future feet

a mountain for each tiger,
a cloud for each galah
pets heckle and giggle from heaven

snake bite memories
still haunt
the rope by the well

one hundred kinds of people
eat the same rice

What an original mind!
Funny and serious at the same time.
This deserves wider recognition.
