Blossoming Lotus: Poem for the New Year By Kathleen Kraft

We are more than our days
We are more than our years
More than our victories
Less than our lacks
We are petals here, one upon another—
The earth that bears the petal
The matter the petal becomes

Root to crown, we offer ourselves
We are one now
Open to boundlessness
In our full nothingness
We balance
For something lighter

We are rich in our seat
We are poor in our seat

We shake in the offering
A chance for rebirth
