lotus prayer for opening

Like a thousand-petal lotus, Open

 

Open fingers that have been gripping a Thing so tightly

Fingers that have gone stiff,

gone numb

clutching a Thing so tightly,

Open.

 

Open and let fly like petals so gently that have fallen off

slowly drifted down

swirling,

kicked up in a breeze of life

only to gently circle away

only to dance

happily

away

only to fly,

quickly easily fleetingly out of site

away

 

like a thousand-petal lotus,

open

and let go of a Thing so tightly grasped

a Thing that is weiging you,

keeping you

here.
