Blue Water-Lilly - Poem by Gary Hembree

Blue water-lilly.
Help me taste the ever clear sky.
Help me search the inner thoughts of my mind.
Then play it all back one static frame at a time.
Illuminate my tiny insignificant world.
Help remind me of what I am.
Then burn me down like a dry field.
With just one ride on you.
My dreams break far from view.
Carry me home blue water-lilly.
Carry me to the nothing that I am.

    Superb Gary!
    The blue water-lilly drives such a wonderful message.
    From the skies to the deepest parts of you
    to an awareness, filled with humility.
    Touching and very well written.
