Nothing measures generosity outlived like the sun shines.
Long for every child. Grant
each one a halo at birth, a golden
crown to grow into and let not
the child's size interest nor offering be given
in exchange for the child's sustenance. The child starves
on a belly full of gold.
Let sustenance be traded for sustenance, the currency
be a vine ripe tomato
or a rose in full bloom, something
that when captured becomes
a stinking pile of rotten flesh
or a dried up false blossom
Money/Currency is energy. Energy wants to move even when at rest. Hoarding money is like hoarding tomatoes. Even if preserved, when money sits too long, money grows rotten. Share money as you would your garden tomatoes with those who have no garden by giving them some tomatoes, a tomato plant, healthy soil and seed. Give those in need enough money to relieve their immediate hunger and get them started growing their own.
