sweetswords/boroi tree

A boroi tree of Bangladesh is a very thorny shrub.
Its fruits are tangy to tongue,
But to the soul its spiky branches are soothing love.
Upon new graves branches of boroi tree.
They are planted for the travelling soul as the living sanctuary.
And it is said,
There is a boroi tree that invade.
Land and the sky from above the seventh heaven.
And of it when a leaf is fallen,
And on it he whose name is written,
Death befallen upon that men or women.
And my Lord said,
When soul is taken out.
When in the veins of men like the thorny tree spreaded about.
And when Angel of Death begins to pull.
Like the fishing hooks through the wool.
A boroi tree of Bangladesh is a very thorny shrub.
Its fruits tangy to tongue,
But to the soul its spikey branches are the soothing love..
