For Bice



The moon so loved the river that she made a gift of the lotus flower,

My Bice's special bloom.


My fingers hold her with intimate grace--

I seek her river-kissed scent--


Joy teaches me what the legends

Of the forgetful water lilies meant:


Because we love, there is nothing else.


No place to move on or back to.


No dreams except this one, this moment.


Nothing to offer except my love, my heart, my soul,


Only and always yours.

That is truly sensual and lovely.

I thought of you when I read it, which probably means you found a soul mate. I thought of you because you have overcome hard times and you are blooming now. Lotus flowers rise up from the murk of the lake bottom to bloom in the light. I added 'Forever My Friend Forever My Love' to the playlist because it seems so appropriate for your happiness.

Lovely lotus poem.:)

I read a book, The Golden Lotus, a long time ago.
The lotus flower has asian connections. Its about struggle and growth
A plant begins to grow from the mud and rises above the water to bloom in beauty. So goes it with the soul.
Congrats:)
