if luck were sandy beach

would you  take just a grain,

or a bucketful?

build a castle to share

or a moat to keep

others and the sea at bay


if luck were a lawn

would  you take just a blade

or a handful?

let it grow tall and free

or mow it

so others could have less


if luck were stars in the sky

would you take a small one,

or perhaps the sun?

put it in a window to

to light the way

or hide it

so others live in the dark.
