You rise with the sun and set with the sun
presenting an aphrodisiac or a “party drug” wonder.
Regardless, you’ve become a spiritual-religious tool
from the land of the Lotus-eater,
who live on a food that comes from every kind of flower.
Surely, if your beauty is removed,
the hardened will weep with a type of withdrawal symptoms
From the mud you rise as most of us should!
In our garden, we have two large fish ponds that are deliciously decorated with the different varieties of the water lily. To meditate on the lily is auspicious and delivers an authentic boost to the shadow and light or the living experience. Her story is quite poetic in the history of man. Priests would deliver her in wine for a euphoric experience. As she rises from the mud, one has to realize her magical potential even if science is not there yet.
