Oak dreams are the dreams of the women, her perception of life, of love, of hope, of happiness and truth. It is an explanation, in a poetic way, of different positions in the female’s life to reach into her deep emotions which come to her heart and her soul. I am going to write a few modest lines, emanated from the deepness of innocent ink, which cannot master the suppression of words mind, in the form of chaos. Sometimes the words attack the paper brutally, and other times they remain stuck in the brain as a heavy ferric helmet that cannot be removed, and at the same time they cannot be entered into the words’ tomb, they remain detained until they fade away with the arrival of new army of ideas. For you, all inspirational persons, you deserve all reverence. Without your ability to influence, I wouldn’t be influenced by you. If you didn’t give me a chance to swim inside you, my words wouldn’t be released. Excuse me... I am not brave enough to tell you that I lived with you in a letter, a word, a line, a sentence, an idea, a meaning, and in poetry; I wandered surreptitiously into you for a moment of truth, I am still living as a butterfly among the flowers in the fields of words.
