Lotus

by Ethel Mortenson Davis

The water lotus
should not be so beautiful
in this war-torn world.

  1. A SAD BLIGHT

    None so blind as those
    Who, given the gift of sight
    Cannot, will not see

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Let us weep then in company. 😦

  2. Thank goodness that it is … and their are poets like you, Ethel, to remind us of the beauty there is to work towards peace for. XO ❤

  3. May war someday be a thing of the past – and the Lotus flourish.
    (Nature has such beauty that sometimes a flower or a sunset or a tree makes my heart and soul inexplicably ache….)
