White Chrysanthemums in Bangkok--By Isha Wagner--New Zealand

White Chrysanthemums  in Bangkok

Blooms cascading from clay pot
On the low chipped table
Gleaming whiteness shines in the
Bright glowing light of day
Each flower a crush of petals
Transmitting the god's message
Of beauty to clear the head
To forget the aching mind
To forget the silent ones
To forget sins of omission

To remember clouds of love
Streaming upon reflection
From the white mirage.

Isha Wagner is a New Zealand poet. She has resided in many countries including Iceland, Libya, India, and Australia.  She read some of her work at the VIII International Poetry Festival held in Granada, Nicaragua, in February 2012. She has had three collections of poetry published.
