homeward bound





Auspicious for going places.

The Lines (base to top)

Ornament feet for walking
Decorate an old man's beard
Make it shine with gobs of gel
Caparison the horses
Though humble the garden thrives
All decked out in shades of white


Mountain over fire. Fire illuminates mountain. Ceramic kilns produce ornaments.

It's a gift to be simple. It's a gift to be plain. But sometimes you have to dress things up a bit.
