Watching the Ripples Radiate.

Chapter 73
The Lost Lotus












Water flower pale and blue
How delicate you are,
Peeping out from yea green pond
In that corner there, afar.
How can something found in heaven
Arrive from mire and weeds,
Then emanate as pure as pearl,
As a rose among the reeds?
So beautiful in detail
And immaculate in line
My inclination is to pick you
But this would be so …unrefined.
So remain there lovely flower
In your hidden garden green,
Tucked away among bull rushes
Amazing and unseen.
I shall keep this special secret
In a corner of my mind
And should I need beauty through this life
...It will be yours sweet bloom divine.
