I Dreamt…

.

drifting on the eternal sea

distant mountains of mystery

blue and purple in their haze

patient till the end of days

lotus flowers floating too

white and yellow pink and blue

symbols of love and purity

steadfast throughout eternity

.

Lotus grows from the mud, the stem grows up through the  water, produces a scented and beautiful flower above the water,  basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the water of experiences, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

    • Thank you, Morgan. I have just returned from reading your blog. For some reason I assumed you were a man, lol! I loved your story about your husky. I always had German Shepherds and then a couple of years ago introduced a ‘little SPCA special’ which happened to be a Maltese Poodle. At the moment I don’t have any dogs due to circumstances beyond my control.
