Y... Close to my children


I was dreaming
I was a magnificent tree
With my children as saplings
standing around me
sharing my roots

I was dreaming
I was a beautiful rose
With my children as buds
standing near me
on the same stalk

I was dreaming
I was a reddish apple
with my children as blossoms
standing near me
on the same branch

I woke up
and my children were near me
So many thanks, my God.


Bachok, Nov 2011

    I have eyes to see all your dreams and I have soul to feel what you need
    And as my eyes send images to my mind, through images i gained my thought
    and my thought got understanding as well as when it reach my soul..The understanding
    tells me all...So as if you was a tree of roses that fruiting red apples
    and i will bear saplings, bud and blossom always around you
    because the root was same, and sharing same love too

And pays us but with earth and dust;
