Poem by Antoni Ooto
Ribbons in Your Field
no matter how much rain falls
you will be all right
where nature whispers to a waiting field
where all hopes faithfully soak
nudging a belief in growth and change
in peace sowing trust
like a monk dropping seed
blessing its fairness
seasoning a waiting field
while keeping that final vow
