Results of the Food Pond Workshop
Children in troubled times are unwilling to live, but their hearts are sad,
May wish to learn from the natural experience, open up the body, let go of thinking,
Listen to the birds, like a fish in a pond,
Write down the troubles and start again.
In troubled times,
young souls unwilling to beg for lives,
have their hearts broken.
Let's learn from nature.
Open up your body.
Throw away your thoughts.
Listen to the bird,
as if we are fishes swimming in fishponds.
Jot down all your annoyance
and get back on track.
