Lilies - Poem by Jay P Narain
Sitting by the banks of my village pond,
I see majestic lotus sprouting all over the water,
The red, pink and white petals over the green leaves,
casts an aura of eternal beauty in my spirits.
When I go to the little village market,
I find flower vendors selling the beautiful lotus,
I see the majesty turned into helpless offering,
I see the perpetual flower with seeded body crying for self esteem.
The beautiful white Calla Lily adorned with smooth green stem,
makes me think it as a nice offering to the memory of my loved ones,
The smooth and sensuous beauty of the pristine white lily,
would enhance the beauty of my love with purity and divinity.
When I look at the yellow Asiatic lily,
I see an exalted beauty radiating her charm away.
while the white Lily shows us the glimpse of heavenly resurrection,
the beautiful yellow lily invites us to enjoy our life on the earth with elation.
We forget the blue, violet, pink and green lilies,
their beauty invokes some spiritual love with nature in our hearts,
they don't fear the adverse and unknown dangers,
they stand smiling fearless and eager to rekindle our souls.
