Beyond the Lotus

Day 24 Prompt: “About losing something.”

born in darkness
the bud of it was small
and inconspicuous
but green
with a tinge of pink
and bright
the start of something… new
with deep-reaching roots
it flowered faster than either of us could have predicted
rippled the entire surface of the pond into surprise

as quickly as it was
it wasn’t
petals lost their lambency
browned a little
and died
but from loss arose new life
there is always light within the dark
there is always room for hope
from life comes death
and from death comes life
