Today I swallowed a seed unmindfully .
I remember ,
how once as a kid , I had done the same
and how afraid I was , lest the seed
should grow into a tree in my belly .
Huh ! Those days are now long gone behind
those fears and those joys
that came from nothing but became our everything .
For who would know ,
that it would be the seed of life
which would grow into a tree ,
rich with experiences inside us
and there’s one more special thing in this tree
no matter which season
it is always laden with fruits
fruits of good memories that nurse the tender heart .
also to remind you ,
no fruit here is forbidden .
