    This does make me ponder of the old adage 'there is good in all evil'. Enjoyed the visual and reflection of your poem Terence...10 (Report) Reply

    Loved this short poem of yours, which reflects your passion for the 'lotus flower'.
    'purity sits amidst murky muddy waters' - loved this beautiful caption.

    The poet knows deep in his heart,
    The colorful lotus that dances afloat,
    Has her root anchored in the dirty mud.
    Only above water she blossoms from the bud. - Four lines quoted from my poem A Poet's Dilemma With Truth.
