A Buddha's Eternal Moment

one lone rose
opened by the sun,
the faint memory of rain,
and the dark damp earth.

reaching to the sky,
petals yearning, at peace...
then, without regret,
wilting back into nothingness...

and no one saw!

    this is great! one of my favorite poets on poemhunter said something where he compared men to flowers, blooming in the spring and then dying soon after...so i take it you have found inspiration in the story of the Buddha? if you get a chance, please read my poem, The River is Never the Same

    Enjoyed the moment in this write of yours!

    Yep this is one of my favourites of yours. In less than thirty words you expose significant meaning with eastern philosophy.
    Great job

    beautiful, beautifully written, Buddha always reminds me of the Lotus. 10+

    Caught for a time in foul swamp [Purity]
    I perceive the luminous lotus.
    Pure remote within its environs. (The Lotus retains an untouchable purity) .
