ChinHooi Ng's Poetic Notes

Water

crystal clear

cultivates lives

benefits all thing and expects nothing

in return

water

kind and soft

soundlessly moistens a scenery

breeding a natural landscape

water

cleanses all things

has a cleansing instinct

to turn dirt into purity

water

all over the wilderness

with its benevolent conduct

doing good to all beings

be like water

with a mind of vale

the inner peace

and harmony

like a drop of water

let the heart shine

to refract the brilliant rays of sun

let it shine.
