A Lotus' Dream - Poem by ONElia AVElar

A lotus dreams of pollination
far from the fast streams...
My lotus pose for meditation
provokes insects and bees
to come, alight and look
for nectar, pollen, seeds
and so disturb my concentration,
ignore my higher needs
and bring a Buddha-smile to my face
by tickling tenderly my heels...

    Not only stray thoughts distract perhaps Dame nature thinks you need to wake up (Report) Reply

    I have been in a situation like this one. I know the feeling, searching for emptiness. there is a mantra that help me a lot
    kate, kate, para kate
    budhiye soha....

    good luck.

    This is lovely, Onelia! We have a phrase about contrasting attitudes or viewpoints in English: 'from the sublime to the ridiculous' - your poetry so often exploits the possibilities of sublime meditation and teasing, absurd observations, both in the same poem, making me smile and think! You set the lotus position (so transcendental) against the physical sensation of giggly tickishness to wonderful effect - no pomposity in your poems - always easy, graceful and human! (Report) Reply

    My poem has nothing to do with lotus-eaters. I do not mind to learn more about them, so please teach me :) (Report) Reply

    One, it seems to have been written the bliss of trance:
    We scatter the pollens all around,
    New lotus bloom all over the pond.
    We, with your Buddha smile beam,
    And sip the nector of their dream. (Report) Reply

    This brought a Buddha-type smile to my face as it tickled my imagination.
