The idea of justice

The idea of justice

The idea of justice
           is not justice
just as the idea
           of beauty

out into the sunshine
           knowing that the sun
brings forth beauty
           even as it fades it
and all that blooms
           is doomed to dust
the truth too
           may wither
and now
           is never enough

on the shore
           there are pebbles
and the sea
           is foaming

who will cast
           the first stone ?
