The Lotus ~ Amazing beauty. Its roots are embeded in mud. It grows in fresh water, often brackish. And yet it proudly brings its leaves above the water surface. And its delicate bloom rises up skywards and dances with the breeze.
dandylion (Taraxacum) The dandelion lights its spark Lest Brigid find the wayside dark. And Brother Wind comes rollicking For joy that she has brought the spring. Young lambs and little furry folk Seek shelter underneath her cloak.
