The Lotus..

We own a pond of heart within

albeit full of our numerous sins.

Yet a lotus is about to bloom

in the depth of serene silence.

The lotus searches for it’s lost identity

in the solid darkness of ignorance.

Yet no dirt ever dare to impure

the divinity of the gentle petals.

The destiny of the pure lotus is certain.

It can’t remain in its confinement.

Tenderly it seeks for a way out

to emerge as a winning spirit.

It waits for the glimpse of light

for the bliss of a perfect flowering.

Sweet fragrance of the pious lotus

carry the truth of our existence.

It unfurls in the sanctity of nothingness

when soul rests in its infinity..
