A dying leaf, life

In miniature; a mystery

Play put on by trees.

269
A wolf howling at

The moon is looking for some

 Other of its kind.

270
A child will not know

The fruits thrown into the trash

By his own parents.

 

271
A caterpillar

Wishes to be a butterfly

Soaring in the sky.

 

272
Butterflies wish to

Be caterpillars on the

Ground always carefree.

 

273

A painting looks so

Composed when the viewer is

Very far away.

 

274
A dog is open

About its feelings. A cat

Will feel in secret.

 

275
Hard-headed people

Will try to build a house on

Sand using logic.

 

276
Mountains are made of

Plates carefully and slowly

Balanced by marched time.

 

277
Ducks floating beneath

A bridge spanning a river in

A dying-leaf fall.

 

278

A well-run pathway

Will have, in occasion, a

Sprouting blade of grass.
