Lotus


Born in a muddy pool,
I am often bitten by bugs,
that live with me in this dirty, murky world
and feed on my leaves
but still this home i love abound
The dirty murky miry pond
that i call my home
nurtures, nourishes & shelters me
transforms me into a beautiful flower
fills me with beauty and enchanting powers
that keeps my head high
enshrines me in the heart of millions
and at the Lotus Feet of God

Wow!! what sublime thoughts. If we all feel proud of the murky surroundings that we are living in, the world will be a different place. But its only someone with the purity of the heart of lotus who can think like that.

Satyu said...

Its beautiful :)
The way you expressed your thoughts.. Its awesome :)

I don't know whether I can say this or not..but I wanna share something about lotus.

Lotus is the true symbol of love rather than a red rose. coz.. the red strokes signify passion and color white means purity, Which is the definition of love.

Takecare
