Lotus

If there were no words

Would life still be a story?

This is what I see:

Still water reflecting sky

Open, fresh, free

Stretching on forever

On the water an ocean of lotus

Wide green leaves giving life

Soaking sunlight and alchemizing that gold

Into perfect out stretching flowers

Expressions And symbols at once

Dredging from the depths

Through deep intertwined roots

From one earth a manyness of being

Showering sight in revelation

the life contained unseen

Unlocked by reaching down, opening arms

And gazing at heaven
