where the writers are
SELFISH...

 

At the sprouting new leaf

flashes an inviting smile with love

a falling ripened leaf

 

To lighten the heart

a drop of tear separates

from fertile eye-mother

and flows on cheek desert.

 

To slake the thirst of earth

condescend from high-skies

the pearls of rain.

 

But man, oh man!

For his own pleasures

erases every other man’s

sweetest smiles.
