Hosea

Come back to me with all your heart, DON'T LET FEAR KEEP US APART. Trees do bend, though straight and tall; so must we to others call. Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life.

The wilderness will lead you to your HEART WHERE I WILL SPEAK. Integrity and justice with tenderness you shall know.

Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life.

You shall sleep secure with peace; faithfulness will be your joy. Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new life.

-A song inspired by second chapter of the Old Testament book, Hosea.

The transformation of a bough

A guava tree in which upper bough shapes like a snake.
In your sleep, you had a dream;
a dream which you dreamed
many times.
You dreamed the same dream,
for the message of that dream, you had not taken hold of as yet.
"Tell me your dream and God will tell you the meaning of your dream."
You saw a bough on the ground.
That turned into a live serpent that came up slithering around your body.
It, then, turned into a kelp.
Silence.
The head is emptied.
Only the heartbeat is heard.
Silence.
And the Lord spoke in the spirit.
The "bough" is a good person in your life who is to turn against you (symbolized by a serpent).
But, take heart; and never cut loose from this relationship.
In the end, that person will return to the self that you used to know and even become the best of a person that that person is in your life (symbolism of a kelp).
Your spirit, then, is ushered into understanding:
"She is my friend who is infatuated with a guy 
whom she thinks is interested in me.
And whom she thinks I am interested in as well."
She will eventually know the real score by herself.
That will lead her from a serpent to a kelp transformation.
Be patient.
