The Lotus Blooms

The lotus flower

blooms in adversity



For there is no greater power

than that which comes from a shower

of struggle


and sorrow

The lotus never forgets

the possibility of tomorrow

Rather than mope,

the lotus is the essence

of Hope

    I love this piece. Personally I’ve always had a fascination with lotus flowers, how something so beautiful can arise out of such muddy circumstances. I think it is a reminder that every moment and experience, no matter how good or bad, holds an opportunity to learn and transform.

    One of my all time favorite quote has been —- ” Lotus flower arises from Mud, love the Lotus not the Mud..” I don’t know who said it.
