I met a word the other day,
It popped up with no notice.
It seemed it had a beef with me,
Something about a lotus?
There was a symbol I had missed,
It had to do with flowers.
I promise truly I have no thoughts,
Perhaps those are my powers.
It is a symbol in many cultures,
Of enlightenment and rebirth.
I will not lay a claim to either,
Unless you mean my girth!
That silly word is having fun,
I think at my expense.
Perhaps it’s time for moving on,
At least that is my sense.
So many words do float about,
They are looking for a place.
Somewhere safe to stay a while,
I think that is the case.
So for now I’ll let it go,
But keep it close in mind.
I never know when I might need,
A word so well defined.
