Only Breath

I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,

first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.

~ Rumi, Only Breath

 

 

The lotus flower only grows in muck. Its gorgeous, symmetrical shape emerges from rich, dirty mud. Not only does it thrive in such conditions, it has the ability to live for a thousand years.

Lotus seeds can be germinated literally thousands of years after their creation. Their stasis does not mean they are forever lost.
