Everlasting Domicile

Like a pale yellow lotus flower
she emerges from the muddy waters
rising to the surface during the day
limbs outstretched, ready to embrace life
and absorb the sun’s natural heat.

Sinking below the terrain at night
she hibernates, seeking shelter from
the gusty winds and dusty air.

Yet, she remains
entrenched in the clear, pure water
rich in oxygen, with submersed roots.
