Tat Tvam Asi

cool porcelain china
warm carved wood
an untouched plate
under unwanted words

why do you dream
silken riches in heaven
when everything is
only sky wrapped in earth?

The words 'heaven' and 'earth' surprises the reader with powerful emphasis. Your sound sense also works very well here.

Beautiful poem Mangala. I wish I could express as much as you do in poetry.

stunning: when everything is only
sky wrapped in earth.
