Lotus Child


With roots in blood and mire
It rose above the city sky

    The lotus flower is a main symbol of Buddhism, the idea being that its roots are in mud and mire yet it blooms above the surface of the water. It is also used in Hinduism where the gods and goddesses are depicted seated on a lotus throne. My poem is a continued metaphor where a young man is the flower. I can explain further if necessary, but prefer for it to be up for interpretation. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
