Eternity

We dream trees off a highway
At a home away from city buzz.

A snail would crawl our garden
From the fence to a grass patch

And eternity passed like dream
A snail in its absolute no hurry.

But we cannot go away from it
Where eternity goes unnoticed.

We could only shrink a dream
To banyan tree in a plastic pot.

(remembering Mary Oliver’s poem “A dream of Trees”)
