How I can't recall
But im staring at
What once was the wall
So this is where you are
And this is where I am
Unsure and a hundred
Since these spider Lilies usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox,
they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in 地 獄(also known as Hell),
and guide the dead into the next reincarnation.
A famous legend is of two elves: 曼 珠, who guarded the flower, and 沙 華 who guarded the leaves.
Out of curiosity, they defied their fate of guarding the herb alone, and managed to meet each other.
At first sight, they fell in love ♥ with each other. G.O.D, exasperated by their waywardness,
separated the miserable couple, and laid a curse on them as a punishment:
the flowers of 曼 珠 shall never meet the leaves of 沙 華 again.
It was said that when the couple met after death in hell , they vowed to meet each other after reincarnation.
However, neither of them could keep their words. ♥
Some other legends have it that when a person sees someone that they may never meet again,
these flowers, also called red spider lilies, would bloom along the path.
Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends .
You once told me, our fingerprints don't fade from the lives we touch.
