Ode to the lilies in the water

every single season
she's in survival mode
focused on her beacon
nymph on a water road

while darkest seasons rule
she's hiding in the deep
on her small private stool
faking she's  deep asleep

at first outburst of light
she's crawling all the way
for  best possible sight
one long  glorious day

waterlilies' jewels
seasons long  renewals
