A Flower Spoke To The Soil

A flower spoke to the soil
but its pains remained untold;
the bushes were pruned
but
they were trapped in snow.

They say the garden is abloom,
the sunshine washes the flowerbeds
and the cool reigns.

Read the full of A Flower Spoke To The Soil

The Crows Shouted

The crows shouted
for
they knew not how to spend the leisure;
the nightingales adorned their nests,
the hay became stacks.
The nightingales hatched,
their breaths were visible.
One flight --
and the world knew the newborn.
Suddenly all shouting stopped.
