Lotus - A Breathe of Zen

"Life flows within and without you"
























































"We were talking - about the space between us all and the people -
Who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion never glimpsing the truth
Then it's far too late when they pass away.

We were talking - about the love we all could share
When we find it - to try our best to hold it there - with our love
With our love we could save the world - if they only knew

Try to realize it's all within yourself - no-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small
And life flows on within you and without you.

We were talking - about the love that's gone so cold
And the people who gain the world and lose their soul
They don't know, they can't see - are you one of them?

When you've seen beyond yourself
Then you may find peace of mind is waiting there
And the time will come when you see we are all one
And life flows on within you and without you.
"

These are wonderful photos of the sacred lotus flower.

This is easily my very favorite flower to photograph.
Every part of this plant, at every stage, is photo worthy. Great compositions. Great photos. Nice series.

I am not certain if it is the lotus flowers which make the photographs exquisite or the photographs which make the lotus flowers exquisite.

I am quite certain no one can unite the two as perfectly as you do, Daliana.
