Stargazing tree bears none,
deprived of the desires
to raise its branches to the skies,
unable to taste the stars.

In its dreams, it burns bright
in desires and hopes,
with its branches into the skies
bearing new moons and stars.

But its dreams died in the heavens,
along with its leaves
perishing by the wild winds,
to lay asleep forever.

Thunder awakens its illusions,
losing the fires in the heavens,
and clouds lined the horizons,
waiting to fall on earth.
