I Shall Be a Flower 12: Jealousy Despair and Hope

It’s a big tree
with its root like a strip of grass.
How the root endures that big frame is a mystery…

A little bird lands and sings a beautiful song.
A ray of jealousy hits the big tree.

The little bird boasting of its colorful feather
jumps around the wobbling twigs.
The gorgeous look of the bird brings
a shadow of despair that darkens the big tree.

The little bird,
its struggle to settle down on the big tree,
its singing to hurl jealousy to other birds.
The tree is aware of this or not?

Otherwise,
the little bird that cherishes an ambition
bigger than the tree, which tries to carry
the big tree in its bosom.

The root of the big tree
digs deeper in the ground.
