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.

    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

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
