Perception

When the magpie flies

It sees jewels all around

Even in a pile of trash

 

When the chipmunk gathers

It picks what’s best for itself

Even in a patch of weeds

 

When a person loves

Their hearts guide them to joy

Even in the midst of chaos

 

Perception isn’t always right

But it’s better than bitter doubt

Even in the course of one’s life
