Visionary Tree, a poem by Affan Yesvi

The tree yonder stands tall
Peeping at me through the window.

Each day I try to look beyond at the open sky
And each day the tree hinders my view.

Then I look away disheartened –
What am I seeking in the skies?
Am I looking for the clouds or the rainbow?

Suddenly between the tree and my window,
A flock of birds,
A few sparrows, a few pigeons,
Surprisingly a parrot too
And the tree is the sky!

This new miraculous vision
Changes my outlook
And I look at the tree
With gratefulness –
Had it not been for the tree
The birds, perhaps,
Would have never come.

And I would have been left
Looking for the sky beyond.
