The Lotus Pickers

The Lotus Pickers

The Serenity, the calm, the silence is ethereal,

Where, thoughts of repose crowd the mind,

Enraptured but still,

The balmy breezes plays across, the placid waters,

it is mystical.

The Boat men roar with dexterity.

To collect the massy white lotus hues,

They are waiting to be picked up,

Smiling at the sun, the bud, to bloom, to flower.

They pick the flowers and paddle back,

It is a difficult task, but the abundance of flowers!

Fill them with hope, because the harvest is good.

The flower stalls to fill, with pleasure and desire.

The people will clamour, for these fresh blooms,

Because tomorrow will be a poya day,

They will honour you Lord at your feet,

Your Buddha nature, your endevours,

Your humility and your Mighty Abode.
