Blooming Innocence! ! !


when i found a puppy
inside the gutter
waiting for someone better
I found innocence in filth

when i ran after the stealing squirrel
who took my nuts spread for shine
i found innocence in the greens
full of life, spirit and cheers

when i hugged the face of life
so near, so dear, so close to heart
i saw innocence dripping down to earth
all my dearest fellow beings starved to death.
