You must be courageous


Although long drought
Little plants
Will be courageous
When the rains came
They will be big trees

Similarly,
My beloved son
You must be courageous
Bitter days are gone
When happy days are coming...

Have a look
Your poor father's
Wheat fields
Waiting for
Flowering season....

  1. Yes, even plants need to be courageous in times of lack of rain! I like the ending....'waiting for flowering season' which can apply to so many different things!
