Strong as an oak, fragile as a tree

Strong as an oak, fragile as a tree

perhaps to love is to learn
to walk through this world.
to learn to be silent
like the oak and linden of the fable.
to learn to see.
your glance scattered seeds.
it planted a tree.
i talk
because you shake its leaves.

Coda – Octavio Paz

  1. To love is to learn, but you dream is to feel. You can’t dream further without learning, but silence alters your dreams. Why not dream loud and learn at the same time?

  2. Silence doesn’t alter – it enhances.. your dream could be thought out aloud.. but then again it wouldn’t be so special, its your thought .. your dream
