Luscious Lotus

Luscious lotus pink and demure

Your sun washed  petals allure

Cloistered within a golden nest

Seed locked treasure fully blest

While mired in mud’s warmth below

Lattice roots send sprouts to grow

Lavish  leaves unfurl  verdant skirts

Plant of delight, my eyes’ dessert

    • These photos were taken at the Fruit and Spice Park in Miami-Dade County’s Redlands.There is a beautiful collection of these wondrous flowers in their gardens. I can understand their symbolism throughout antiquity.
