The Lotus - Poem by Sitabz Garg

In the lake
by the old temple
a lotus fell in love.

At a moonlit hour
she looked down
seductively shedding
off her bridal gown,
sees the moon
like a fallen flower
sleeping.

In the temple,
the midnight ritual begins.
people come with their prudence, wine and Shakespeare.
They chant and the water trembles slightly
Causing the moon
to loose sight of her beloved.

Topic(s) of this poem: discrimination, love, unrequited love
