Haiku – farewell to darkness

Farewell to darkness

Lilies, shadows and lotus

Transcend to the light

Walking in Chanticleer over the weekend, I was reminded of the symbolism of lilies, shadows and lotus flowers. Lilies are for saying farewell and mourning what is lost. The shadows playing with the light, reminded me of the shadow self. The lotus represents the emergence from suffering to freedom.

Nature offers more than meets the eye when we pause and pay attention.

  8. LOVELY flowers, their meaning, and your haiku. I enjoy having sweet-smelling lilies in a vase in our home. Some people tell me it’s morbid, that lilies are only for funerals. I disagree. Life to death to life. Lilies are a reminder of our cycles. ❤
