A Flower Cut From Desire Poem by Mark Heathcote


The lotus is a flower cut from desire
Whatever her hue, her petals attire
She is the goddess that sank into —
The muddy waters - arose anew.

Her purity and beauty is no cauldron.
Thou portrayed to symbolize the sun
She is both a spiritual, awakening
A flower of prosperity, meaning.

A symbol of fertility, spirituality,
And even in her purest-state, eternity.
The blue lotus is victory over wisdom
Pink the supreme lotus, Buddha's pilgrim.

The lotus path to noble truths is Purple
White - purity, spiritual perfection, mental
The Red lotus is related to the heart,
Associated with, love and compassion.

    The dew is on the lotus, rise great sun and lift my leaf and mix me with the wave, om mane padme hum, the sunrise comes, the dewdropp slips into the shining sea - Buddhic mantra. Great write, very meaningful. (Report) Reply
