Poetry: “Lotus”

Another poem, inspired by a recent travel photo.

Lotus

Reflected in the pond below
With their roots deep in the mud
Flowers raised up higher
High above the dirt below

Precious and so delicate
Unfurled petals like a fan
The breeze seems not to stir it
It is solemn and so pure

It grants us not just beauty
For us all to contemplate
Its parts have many uses
Such a wondrous holy plant
