One winter day
At the garden shop
Deep green of a small pine tree for bonsai caught my eye
There around were various green trees for the New Year

What’s the color of real ever-green?
What’s ever-never changing thing in the world?

The trees for the New Year told me
“Look at us!”
The ever-green pine told me
“Have me!”

May all people in the world have ever-never changing peaceful life
Beyond some limited winter days
Beyond some limited areas
