I was lost in exotic lush greenery,
And quite lost in my deep thoughts,
Yet aware of the blossoming scenery,
Of riverbank stones slimy with moss.
I was lost in woods, nature's heart,
Gone green out of civilized society,
Off to myself, amidst natural arts,
Along an obscure pathway of quietly.
I was knee deep in jaded backroads,
Awash in sun in meditation meadow,
Until I stumbled on the black rose-
As rare as moonlight on a rainbow!
