Blossoming Lotus: Poem For The New Year
We are more than our days We are more than our years More than our victories Less than our lacks We are petals here, one upon another— The earth that bears the petal The matter the petal becomes
Root to crown, we offer ourselves We are one now Open to boundlessness In our full nothingness We balance For something lighter
We are rich in our seat We are poor in our seat
We shake in the offering A chance for rebirth
