Walking alone in the wilderness,
I felt strange when I saw thick bushes,
Out of curiosity, I still go on my journey,
And discovered a secret passage along the way.

There’s a narrow stairs as I went down,
Looking side by side with a frown,
What lies beneath on this unknown place?
I heard the splashing of water that makes me dazed.

In front of me was a real paradise from nowhere,
Flying fairies with colorful wings are everywhere,
A spectacular garden, a nymph, and a magic unicorn I see,
Plants and trees sparkling like diamonds around me.

I am in the world of fantasy,
Mesmerized with these great beauty,
Soft winds caressed my whole body,
A joyful heart makes me so sleepy….

I woke up by the sound of birds and the heat of the sun,
I looked around and in a blink everything was gone,
Maybe it’s not true anyway, but in my palm was a diamond leaf..

    very cute ending. That would be so neat to awaken from such a fantastical dream and to have the leaf still in your hand!
