A Tree In Thought Of His Mother

spring dies
she watches the leaves decay
winter mirror in her eyes
the sun lightyears away

yet a flower blooms
Safely in her bosom
oblivious of the winters around

as she protects him from the vultures old
from the scorching heat and the weather cold

even the strongest gale
must uproot her first
before it could pick the flower young

as long as she is there
the flower shall bloom in every season
without fail

and now the flower has become a big tree
in dreams of his sleep he sometimes sees
how she sailed away to some foreign place
in the winter he longs for her grace

and when everones gay, in the season spring
and the birds at the sky they sweetly sing
wonders that tree in an empty room
how his flowers forgot to bloom

    Once a blooming flower tells its tale it will have the same fragrance.
    'The Tree in Thought' has many saplings and this tale will be told to many and many.
    A poem that made me nostalgic... (Report) Reply
