Lotus Blossom

Lotusblüte / Lotos Blossom / Flor de loto  

Einsam erstrahlend
Über dunkelstem Wasser
die Lotusblüte


Solitary shine
Atop the darkest water
The lotus blossom


Solitaria brilla
Encima del agua más oscura
La flor de loto

    Outstanding description of the lostus blossom, Gert. I felt like I was there looking at its beauty with you. Very well done! In this case the Spanish was easier for me to follow than the German. It's different for each poem you submit and I really appreciate the translations! Love, Carolyn
