On Top Of It All

The western man breathes,

A sweet little dream.


The zen man sees,

The air that he breathes


And I only take,

What's mine for the sake


Burning away,

The cause to soon fade.

      Nice poem, very interesting.

      I am amazed how this poems speaks so beautifully in such short poetry.

      I can not seem to do that. I feel if my poems are not long they have no conclusion lol. I guess that's me.

      Beautiful

      To breathe the air brings what we need. Taking only what we wish to heed. Thanks Poetic!
