    intriguing piece... im being brave but my perception is praising (kind of) the beauty of the symbolic birth of lotus (be it flower) loosely i think, where the white petals praise upwards, free breathing, where as the rest of us scurry around lost almost beast-like, untrustworthy and suffering... thats my understanding... maybe understanding is not required, just appreciating the form... im not that bright but i like to lay my version of how i see things thanks karen (Report) Reply

    i am sure i dont understand (i never do) but it makes me think of how out of innocence pain can spring its ugly head. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
