The Turtle and the Lotus Flower

Everyone rushes and makes a fuss around

Only the turtle stays firm on the ground

Calm as Buddha, enjoying the sun

That’s the meaning of life, that’s real fun.

Only the turtle and the lotus flower

Colour as joy, beauty as power

Being – not having, this is how

Comes the magic of here and now.
