lotus promises for orange blossoms


this is only
my orange tree

I am bringing it
from the greenhouse

can you smell the citrus
into the air?

I rose early
this morning
and glimpsed
in the promise
made by a water lily

or white
or blue

when I see the flower
I know

the lotus
keeps her promises


Poem #533 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.
