||（I was on the way to XingXing hotel on Beisang Rod which is on the east of the West Lake in Hangzhou, I was strike by a view where a single lotus flower stood by itself, with the intensity of the color under the September’s sunlight as if saying welcome to my arrival of my home town Hangzhou, for that simple beauty I was inspired to write this poem.）|
I will only awake on time
If you can endure the loneliness in deep autumn
I will only return to you
If you can cross the lake in deep winter
Here, your presence as if September’s air
And as if hot summer’s love
The following pictures of lotus flowers were shot by photographer Eadwn Huang in greater Boston area during Summer of 2013. You can find these pictures in frames at Sichuan Garden II restaurant in Woburn, Mass.
