Lotus

Photobucket
Kuan Yin Temple, Chinatown, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii
 


in the temple court
a tub to house the lotus—
the homeless man weeps


the mourning dove approaches
a wing wipes his tears away
(Janie Adcock, I Got Nothing)
 
lotus opens
blossom fills
homeless’ bowl
(Cheryl-Lynn Roberts, Tournesol dans du Jardin)
