China Doll

Secret pink jewel
Dancing with emerald lotus leaves
Sun-kissed China Doll.

I wrote this haiku as a tribute to a stunning lotus I planted at my former home. These flowers were so beautiful and just thrived, thanks to a natural spring in my yard.? I will always remember them.

What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

Joseph Addison
