you are like a lotus

blooming only from the 

darkest and thickest


eesome to the eye instinctively.

yet not one soul has taken the time

to understand

your metanoia.

for most, it is difficult to perceive

how something so 

precious, so delicate,

can be oh, so orphic.

for most, it is hard to perceive

how one single human being

can lead someone else

into such a profound, immense

jungle of forelsket.

you are like a lotus. 

constantly rising up

through the mud

into the lives of people

who need to see, and feel

your beauty

the most.

    welcome to MPS shyla!
    Very well written. Had to look up the meaning of some of the words you used. Well done!


    ANGELA HERE ~ Good Evening SHYLA thanks for your first POEM. You will find MPS is a proactive in which we read & comment on each others Poems. Thanks for your first poem an elegant concept and I love some of the *lesser known* words you use. This adds to the quality of the Poem !
    In this life we all meet people who shine like Lotus Blossom in a sea of mud ! Yes they are all *Pleasing to the eye* people who themselves have had *A change of Heart* & follow the teachings of Orpheus ! Such People draw us wittingly (or unwittingly) into the *Beginnings of Love* ! My exerience of Brian (who I married in March) was like this ! WE met at a rather low key Dance & Social - at the Hospital where I work and (compared with the other Men) He did shine like a Lotus Blossom ~ AMEN ! Please visit out site ~ Thanks

    Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
    Love Angela & Brian ! !
