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
