Remembering Maja: Lotus Love

Maja adored flowers of all varieties but her favourite was always the graceful lotus.

We remember her through her love of the lotus, combined with a poem by Gong Zi Zhen, a famous official of the Qing Dynasty.

Translated simply into English, the poem meaningfully reads:
The falling petals are not lifeless.
They turn back to earth to nurture and protect the flower’s roots.
lotus-love

A poem by Gong Zi Zhen, a famous Qing Dynasty official.
