L is for Lotus

Blossom of infinite beauty
colors beyond understanding
or comprehension
by a mortal eye.

Flower rising clean and pure
from your bed of mud
and slime each night,
you slip beneath to sleep.

Your rebirth and renewal
gives hope to the spiritual,
ceremony to the religious,
and connection to the universe for all.

Gods and Goddesses
form their heavenly thrones,
from your strong
magnificent flowers.

Your scent lifts
our souls skyward,
to dance and commune
with the Divinity in life and death.

Ancient and wise is the Lotus Flower,
whose roots form in the densest mud
and flowers burst forth
in stunning beauty.
