The Heart Of A Lotus


A summer lotus ready to bloom,
Is a heart wrapped in worries
Who can peel off the wrapping petal by petal
Who can call out the heart of the lotus

Oh, the hapless one, who
Either leaves in too much a hurry or comes too late

The sweet heart long in wait,
Has become a bitter lotus
The outcome can't be changed

The worries of the lotus
Have turned into
holes with unbroken fibers
