Lotus Hearts

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Who we are,

and what resides within us,

deeper than we ourselves recognise,

is disclosed

when true love beckons.

Like a flower

bathed in morning dew,

our potential unfolds,

and within the perfection of love,

is renewed and redefined.

Love transforms us,

irons out the wrinkles

of the past,

the precursor

to the real beginning of life,

a deep spiritual love,

uncommon and radiant.

When all else recedes,

and hearts imbue

the course of right,

there is no doubt,

no questions,

just the deep and abiding love

of two hearts,

their journey found.

Lotus is a symbol of spiritual awakening in Hinduism and Buddhism. I loved this metaphor in your poem.
