Open Window

Maple Makes Money

by Alex Cheong (Gwangyang)

The maples are fluttering.

one maple

two maples

five maples

ten maples

The number varies.

People are flapping.

one person

two people

five people

ten people

Did the number decide them?
Did they decide the number?

We are coasting.
thin but thick
tame to the taste of the leaves
We become the fox of a star.

“Blossom” by Go Gyeol (Jeonju)


From the Author:
I am happy to reproduce the literary character of Korea through this poem. This piece represents money and the Fox from The Little Prince. I could write this poem because I wrote down the words I had thought about. Don’t be afraid to try, start! Well begun is half done.
