when a grasshopper sits

~

When a grasshopper sits on a blade of grass, he has no thought of separation, resistance, or blame.

Human children prefer dragonflies whose wings and bellies are as red as chili peppers.

But the green grasshopper blends completely with the green grass, and children rarely notice it.

It neither retreats nor beckons. It knows nothing of philosophy or ideals.

It is simply grateful for its ordinary life.
