Poem – “Golden Lotus”

Golden Lotus

The holy princess is the desert embodied
She is its jewel of water, braids of hair
Billowing like braids of sand skirting the dune,
Vibrant like the star in the moon’s eye
Golden pools of lotus in her dark palms
Her spells are keys to heaven lost in silence
The holy princess hears no human war
