I am Lotus flower

I lie in wait for moon to cease Pond skater floats on high Dawn chorus splits the nights silence Morning ray I now do spy Slowly I stretch and break the surface Of the glassy pond, my home With subtle hues of pink and white My shape I start to form I raise myself in purety Above the muddy floor From such dark depths I do emerge Upwards I start to soar Head now held high so undefiled The carp beneath for shade My heron friend is by my side For food he starts to wade Now in full bloom with broken dawn Emanating beauty's power My leaves float gently upon this pool I'm the proudest lotus flower
