In summer

Beneath the shade of Bunyan tree
Away from the blazing hot summer sun
The lily floating unconcernedly in the pond
Invites me to reflect on the paradox of life
Pure and exquisite it thrives in murky waters

Sometimes even in the swamps of mud and slime
Yet it remains pure, untouched by the muck around it
Can we too remain pure, surrounded by the grime of immortality?

Written for;Tuesday writing prompt, use the words summer, lily, and pond in a piece of writing

  1. what great reflections Sadje as we continue the swim in clear and murky water!
    great line:
    “Sometimes even in the swamps of mud and slime
    Yet it remains pure, untouched by the muck around it”

    reminds me of the water at our lake that is alive and thriving with algae.. ha but we need more water! 💖
