Water Lotus

There is a fountain outside the office. It is said that the fountain has not been sprayed for a long time. Only a rockery full of Moss stands alone in the center of the pool. Several unknown plants on the rockery are full of vitality, although the pool water was not very clean, there were groups of red koi swimming freely, which was quite happy. It was in midsummer, which was undoubtedly the best place for me to go when I was working and leisure. I don’t know when I started, I was surprised to find that there were some flowers in the pool. Looking from a distance, it looked like lanterns one by one. I hurried to the pool, ah, what a beautiful flower. There are two kinds of colors, light yellow and pink. The flower looks like a charming girl with shy veins, I am afraid that such a simple and elegant color can’t be dyed with any kind of pigment in the world! Unlike Lotus, which has a long stem that can stand on the water gracefully, it also has a stem, but the stem just holds the flower and just emerges from the water, in this way, it is closely combined with the water surface, just like a delicate girl, quietly leaning against her mother. The leaves of the flowers are long and angular, neatly arranged, each leaf keeps a proper distance, neither dense nor sparse. It floats quietly on the water, without noise, publicity, and even no fragrance that ordinary flowers should have, so beautiful, without any decoration. Its leaves also float on the surface of the water, keeping a near distance from the flowers, seemingly irrelevant but reflecting each other. I have never seen such a flower, fresh and elegant, but it shocked me. My colleague said, this is water lotus, commonly known as water lily. I suddenly remembered two poems in my mind, that was “Shayo Nara, goodbye” written by Xu Zhimo. It was the most gentle one who lowered his head, like the shyness of a Lotus which was beyond the cool wind. This was a poem that I remembered deeply, I have been thinking about what kind of flower can be used to describe a gentle and beautiful woman by an affectionate scholar Xu Zhimo. I once mistakenly thought that Lotus is a lotus flower, but it seems more appropriate to use Lotus to describe a graceful and graceful woman, compared with lotus flowers, lotus flowers are more fragile and shy, not as confident and arrogant as lotus flowers. After busy work, I always like to go to the pool, like going to a date in my heart, full of joy. Flowers bloom one after another, always welcoming me in its most beautiful posture. I stand by the pool, but my heart is always mixed, because I find that no matter how hard I rack my brains, unexpectedly, I couldn’t find a suitable word to describe its beauty and my incomparable love for it vividly. I felt suffocated in my heart, and I always held it in my hand, the impulse to caress and play in every way, but reason told me that such behavior was very disdainful. It left the water surface and its leaves, it is no longer a spiritual life, it will wither and zero, and how can I bear to let it die in my hands because of my selfish love, let me appreciate it from a distance, just like many beautiful things in life, instead of reluctant to ask for them, let them gradually disappear in your hands, and let the past beauty disappear, it is better to stand in the distance and watch carefully, because liking doesn’t have to be based on what you have. Only when you know how to let go at the right time can you become a happy person. I love this lotus flower, which let me know that I, through the wind and rain, through the vicissitudes of life, still have a heart that can perceive beauty and discover beauty, and still have a pair of eyes that can capture beauty and discover beauty, life will continue, and my heart will keep a little joy because of this beautiful flower.
