I saw it,
a fat robin, resting in the naked bush
how satisfied she looked
so filled with the worms and the bugs of the earth
I sit, also over weight, fat you say
wondering, knowing what I know, feeling what I feel,
how does one act with skillful means
so that justice will flow like a river, everywhere,
when national issues, interest, fear and even hatred block justice
stop all peoples from being free, safe and loved.
Oh fat and happy robin, let us learn from you
as the bush fills out, green, and as spring brings new life,
may this world be filled with hope...may you find hope, somewhere...
ko shin, Bob Hanson
