Weekly photo challenge: Growth

 

Giant lotus that grows on pond south of Wickford, RI

We found this giant lotus pond last summer by chance. This summer I went back to check out the lotus only to find out that a member of the Ocean State Poets group lives in a condo right behind the pond. So I got another chance to visit and to learn a bit more about these beautiful creatures.

The poet said someone had absconded with some of the lotus this year — actually came and ripped them out to put in his own pond. She was on a mission to find the criminal and return the lotus to their home. I hope she accomplishes her task. They are so beautiful.

Giant lotus leaves
like platters set the table
for petal goblets.
