Written for:  Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #111 Troiku … New Beginnings … Lotus starts to bloom

Lotus (1)

in deep prayer
eyes closed in devotion–
lotus starts to bloom


in deep prayer
praying mantis on chair arm
still as a twig

eyes closed in devotion
the child prays for his mother
please let her get well

lotus starts to bloom
promising purple of health
praying mantis pleased


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
