Advice from the Lotus 4


I need water

To live, grow and feed

But I don’t let it taint me

For my  leaves

repel water with speed.

So while liv­ing in the water

Which I need, I

Live in it free.

So Just like me

You humans need action

To live, grow and feed.

The dif­fer­ence is

You want to own the action

And its seed

And get caught up in greed.

So like me —  the lotus flower

Human, learn

to live dis­pas­sion­ate­ly

Until your death hour.
