So delicate it is, as narrow as heart opens
The thread of life, squeezed into world of
Woods, so soft inside, hard outside to pick
With the multitude of trees that form cover
With the sharpness of the transient swinging
In the wind, the path opens up on the chest
Of woods and paves way to the soft music
That heard with password of hefty greenish
Beauty that to come through the sweetness of
Silence and keep the path grown with grass
That to shudder with beam of indefinite love
Of singing birds, crave for end of path and
With smart thoughts, leads to pleasurable end.
