LIKE A LOTUS


Is it possible to live like a lotus…without ever touching the dirty waters of life?

How can I flee this wilderness filled with the unclean temptations of lust and greed?

In desperation, I can find greater joy with a wordless poem on a sleepless night than with a romantic novel glorifying the darkness of the heart.

Sadly, an unhealthy romance bears destructive powers to turn an altar of gold into ashes of burnt copper.

As a result, only a few will ever find priceless jewels amongst the shadows of deceit and lies within the arena of love.

Once darkness has blanketed the earth with its magical mystery, the lips of the moon will gingerly kiss each nation with an alluring light

My darling, like a lotus, my heart will display its beauty and values towards only you, even if the temptations of unclean desires try to lure me into their naked embrace.

  2. Perfectly and romantically described, Andy, you reveal with vivid images exactly what happens to love when we don't stay true and holy in our relationship. And, adore your promise in the last line! Wow! Every woman wants to hear that! Blessings to you!

    1. Hello Ann.
      I had to do some research before adding the image to make sure I got the right one (smile).
      The main difference between the two:
      Lotus leaves and flowers rise above the water. Lily leaves and flowers flat on the water's surface.
      Thanks for the question.

  19. The metaphor of the lilly is used in describing the self when on a yoga journey.. The fidelity with the self or love is pure and real.
