The old teacher weeps—
birds and flowers turn to dust,
planets lose their way.

      I don’t think it’s either. Rather, I think it’s that the students aren’t interested in anything but their mobile devices! (But what do I know?)

  10. May be the teacher is crying because the planets/students have lost their way. He thinks of his pupils seriously.


  11. Very powerful…thank you

  12. everything is dust
    lose one way – find another
    weep with happiness
