Black Lotus

from by The Ebony Bed



a splendor
a splinter caught in the spine.

When momentum
meets resistance
sends a shock through time.

But you can’t stop the motion now.
No you can’t try and slow it down.
No you can’t stop the turning ‘round.
Now it’s your time permutate.

Open your mouth and take
the deepest of breaths you can make.
Go on embrace the change.
Black lotus blooming.

Stretch up and stretch out wide.
Open and greet the skies.
Strong from your core inside.
Black Lotus blooming.

got you under
muddy waters won’t let go.

But what’s under
is another
version of you that roots your soul.

So stretch up and stretch out wide.
Open your closed third eye.
Breathe in the breath of life.
Black Lotus blooming.

Take all your painful past
churn it to sweet molasses,
the nectar to your next joy crash.
Black Lotus blooming.
Black Lotus blooming.
