Ying & yang

A man from the West

Stopped by a wall to admire

A beautiful flower.

 

He thought I must have this

So he plucked the flower from

Its home and it died.

 

A man from the East

Stopped by a wall to admire

A beautiful flower

 

He bowed to it in reverence

And walked on…

  1. I really like this poem. It shows the differences in how cultures view things. And you show this with very few lines. Short and meaningful. Has a good message.
