Gratitude Lately

February 10, 2015

magnolia blossom
This magnolia (a spring 2014 bloom), which reminds me of a lotus.

The lotus opens
Only one petal at a time
Try to force it open
It will shrivel, maybe even die
So people awaken 
Sometimes slowly
Do not worry in your mind
Just watch for the rhythm and listen for the rhyme.
