Where are you God?
A gift of fig fruits
Killed under the cover of flowers,
Give banyan fruits
In the latency of the creation of flowers
A bouquet of flowers
The fiery furnace of Missing;
A bunch of jasmine buds
The aroma filled the body!
Fill the sea with water
Embraced by the flames,
A deer leaves a tiger
Isn’t it left for hunting?
Light the night
Tie the night rush to the light
A kite on a needle
What is the beauty of your love that flies?
To beg with pity
Arrest on arrival,
of life in colored leaves
God created where are you?
This earth is a seed!
