Higher Fragrance

From the Rose:

Blooming in a bed of thorns
Rich colors imbued with jazz
Heady fragrance in a sinful dance
Riots of confusion crowding the senses
Alluring, tempting, trapping…
Final swirls into a web of guilty fragrance
Can only see the Self! Can only live the Self!

From the Lotus:

In a cool sheet of water
Gliding the expansive green leaf
A symbol of vastness, a sign of openness
Cool Pink, cool White
Soft, pure giver of peace
Stem, stalk and petals of bliss
Calling out waves of Compassion

Steeping Finite, Merging Infinite
Not Self, Not Other. Just One, Just All.
