Artist's Description

I love flowers. Lotus is one of my favorite . Happy St. Patrick’s day. Done with Nikon D 50, Sirgma DG lense 70-300, edited in tone mapping. Done with my camera Nixon D 50, lense Sigma
Dedicated to Kairi, my lovely daughter, whom I miss so so much that hurts, inspired at her talent and loveliness.

The lotus flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet.
The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck.
One psychologist argues that hope “…comes into play when our circumstances are dire”, when “things are not going well or at least there’s considerable uncertainty about how things will turn out”. She states that " hope literally opens us up removes the blinders of fear and despair and allows us to see the big picture become creative" and have " belief in a better future". “Psychologist, C.R. Snyder and his colleagues say that hope is cultivated when we have a goal in mind, determination that a goal can be reached, and a plan on how to reach those goals”. Look how hopeful this Lotus flower is. Hope is distinct from positive thinking.


I stay in the middle of roar
In the middle of racked beach
Holding on my hand
Grains from golden sand

How many still creeping
Sinks through fingers
Oo, when can I sweep
When can I sweep them

Can I surrender
Grasp them for myself
Oo God, can I surrender
One from them from the trap
