  1. Lotus, Beautiful one


    You balance on the waters

    With regal equanimity,

    You grace deities’ hands.


    Harried by the water’s sway

    Do devotees question your roots?

    Do they exalt your murky origins?


    Is your journey honoured?

    Do lovers know of your yearning?

    Do they bless your reaching the light?


    ‘Circled like a glowing moon

    Do viewers know of you longing?

    Do they feel your solitude?


    Seemingly floating aloft

    Grounded in the mud and mire

    You bridge the zenith and nadir

    Beautiful one, Lotus
