Flower 1 - The Beautiful Lotus

Rating: 4.7

The beautiful Lotus,
Standing on muddy waters,
Untainted - uncluttered -unhampered,

The anchor- a long green stem,
Strongly and firmly rooted!

A sailing ship that shall never sink,

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
When i completed my school and was entering college, my father wrote a letter to me. 'i was 16 going on 17'. He wrote: 'Be like a lotus, who though standing in muddy water, yet retains its beauty and purity.' This example of a Lotus had a great impact on my mind.

Years later, i wrote this poem. i truly consider Lotus to be a complete and wholesome flower.

Lotus inspires me as well. I compare it to the oasis in the desert, Silver lining of clouds, a victory in defeat and to so many things...... I don't know whether you tasted the gravy of its stems if not I recommend you to have it once, it is not easy to cut the stems due to the sticky substance it has but the taste is ultimate.....A thought provoking poem..10

The beautiful lotus. This poem is about the lotus which is our national flower and a complete flower according to the poet. Very true. The lotus though submerged firmly in the muddy pond remains unpolluted everglowing.
