‘Until such time as we measure

Wealth in heartbeats, forests,

love, compassion,

children, honesty,

cups of tea,

beautiful words, music, self expression,

falling leaves, falling rain, falling tears,

reticulate veination, dew, truth,

closeness, intimacy, orgasms,


wild water, wild wind, wild dreams,

trust, eye contact, memories,

shooting stars, stillness,

hope rising above despair,

colour and courage,

mist and mountains and waterfalls – we will remain poor.’
