《坚强和勇气》Strength and Courageous

The Tree
salutes the little Grass,
for his strength against the Storms,
and the little Grass,
salutes the Tree,
for his courageous to reach for the Sky.

树,
向小草对暴风雨的顽强致敬,
小草,
也向树敢于向天伸展的勇气致敬。

祈泉
2012年8月9日于新加坡
恭祝新加坡的独立日。
Dedicated to the little red dot, Singapore and its citizens, for the strength and braveness to survive, and to take on challenges.

    • You are being humble, and you know you are encouraging to me as well =).

      • I love to get the credit there cause a writer like you should always be encouraged for the wonderful dishes he brings on the plate regardless of the choice of ingredients!!
        Much love,
        -Naima.

      • There is a Confucius quote saying that, where there are three people that are walking together, one of them can be my teacher. In another quote he said, A teacher and a student is equal, and we learn from each other in life.

      • I do believe we are equal and capable of learning from each other – it is the very same reason why we have been blessed with the brain to think and ponder unless other living being; that makes us a HUMAN!!
        -Naima.

  3. every little thing has a part to play in this huge plan called universe.

    • Dear Sharmishtha

      I like the idea in Hinduism about the third eye, not to see the world in a different way, but to see the world in their own/real way. Like what I have written, I can still only see the image of myself…

      kc

  4. Beautiful!
