Your portion

Sooner or later the temples will be destroyed
By the acts of barbarians, or the vagaries
Of the earth. But all you need, to be happy,
Is an earthen bowl
To collect every day, your portion
Of the precarious beauty of the world,
And then to share its remains with your friend,
Or the innocence of your dog.

Claude Michel Cluny
