So what if the chilis are plastic
and the sun made of tin!
As it grows skyward.
you may see a tree bear
all kinds of fruits
if you look carefully.
Heed this reminder to
spice your life
with the unexpected,
even though it may
blister your tongue,
for a time,
with what’s new to your system.
And look for the sun
wherever you are lucky enough
to see it shining
in the most unlikely skies.
Emblems are everywhere
along your way,
if you have eyes
ready to read—
what is already written
in the language of your own heart.
So be on the look out
for what may be
or left—
in front
of your eyes,
as it may lead you
straight ahead
to where you need to go.
