A Posy of Flowers – 4: By Alan Jacobs


Pink lotus, emblem of Hindu wisdom sage,

Greatest aid to spiritual growth for man.

If one learns their teachings and carefully scan

The practise needed for this Kali Yuga age,

An inner struggle the aspirant must wage.

Pink lotus is rooted in muddy mire, but can

Still open as a bloom of beauty better than

Known by those who’re blind to God’s Almighty plan.

A soul lived a life of gross indulgence,

But tired of pleasure she turned to learn

Truth necessary for her repentance,

Self Realisation to surely earn.

Her ignorance and sin were fertile ground

To turn within. True wisdom she quickly found.
