Rise delicate one
from the liquid  womb
murky and quite.
Rise to the kindling
of  the heavens above
Rise to the skies. 
for you will float above it all
and eventually
keep the company of Gods.

On a good day like this a package arrives.

Brimming with pink and white lotus buds

You hear them slowly unfold  into blooms ..

and quietly remember a day not long ago that went something  like today goes.

I love that lotus, grow them here too but not as pretty as yours.

Rajee Sood said...

Chandan,your first snap almost looks like a lotus whisperer... beautiful... I completely share your love for the lotus ...becuse they don't quite stand very firm on their stems... I usually put them in a long glass cylinder ... either ways they are lovely and so is your post.
Thanks for sharing.
