I Met a Word

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 itโ€™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 Iโ€™ll let it go,

But keep it close in mind.

I never know when I might need,

A word so well defined.

    Pam this is wonderful!! From time to time a word pops into my head for no apparent reason. You describe the process perfectly.

    I hope I never reach the state where words I want no longer pop to the surface. They remain forever lost to me.
