A Tree In Thought Of His Mother - Poem by kanav justa

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

    Favorite lines:
    “even the strongest gale
    must uproot her first
    before it could pick the flower young”

    but my computer and my ‘brain’ tell me there is something wrong with a word here:
    “and when everones gay, in the season spring” ………….everyone’s/everyone is …….? :) :)

    I think “his” flowers did not bloom because “he” had no flowers. I do think some trees do not produce flowers or fruit. some are definitely called male and female. maybe the females should wear saris/dresses so you and I can tell the difference?

    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...
