This morning I was able to plant some euphorbias on some small pots in our mini- garden(since our garden is just “mini” might as well use “small” pots^^)…We used to have a bigger space to plant trees and herbs but now we only have a very limited space….And I truly miss gardening….It was actually my first love…..I remember the time when I was really consumed in doing this activity that I won’t mind not eating the whole day and the next day I got sick:)…..Ofcourse now I won’t do that anymore^_~”Bawal magkasakit!!!!”(Avoid getting sick because it costs too much being in the hospital nowadays)….Whatever we do it’s better that we do them in moderation….although when we were younger we don’t mind right?…but when we get older we do mind:)…..
.I got a picture of a euphorbia on google images and I wanna share it with you^^(although I know you are already familiar with them esp. us Pinoys yet I just find the picture so attractive:)…..and also I translated a poem of “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer in Tagalog….
Makakakita pa kaya ako
ng ‘sang tulang ‘singganda ng puno…
“Sang punong ang mga uhaw na ugat,
sa tamis na daloy ng tubig ay nakayakap…..
Puno na sa Diyos ay tumitingin
at itinataas ang mga dahon sa pananalangin,
Puno na kung sa tag-araw
ay napapalibutan ng mga ibong, wari’y umaapaw….
Sa kanyang sinapupuna’y lamig ay nahimlay,
binahaginan pa ng ulang walang humpay….
Mga tula’y nakakaya ng ‘sang tulad kong dukha
ngunit Diyos lamang, ang sa puno’y makagagawa….
by: Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)
- THINK that I shall never see
- A poem lovely as a tree.
- A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
- Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
- A tree that looks at God all day,
- And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
- A tree that may in Summer wear
- A nest of robins in her hair;
- Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
- Who intimately lives with rain.
- Poems are made by fools like me,
- But only God can make a tree.
