Ode to a Water Lily – Hour 1


I envy you, water lily

quietly floating along the shallow shore.


Your pearly white petals open

to welcome the day,

sunlight bursting forth

from your golden heart.


Like hands raised in varada mudra

you spread kindness

emanating the peace

I so desperately seek.
