"No one can see their reflection in running water.
It is only in still water that we can see."
~ Taoist proverb
The reflecting pool, its water still and dark, hides koi swimming among the waterlily and lotus blossoms. Surface reflections of color, light and shape form perfectly mirrored blooms floating upside down in their own parallel universe. Have I mentioned how much I love waterlily, all waterlily?
