ode to lotus

you bloom beauty from mud ruts silk road
right view
give soup its crunch candy its cartwheels
right intention
you hide-n-seek carp bridal bed frog passion
right speech
umbrella rainy season sweat rice sticky sweet
right action
give fortune her fertility farmers their medicine
right livelihood
spoke wheel eightfold path its unity cushion guanyin
right effort
let arhat he xiangu laugh at her
right mindfulness
immortal brothers’ transformations mud to mud
right concentration
