Waterlily Reflection

Waterlilies have been my favorite flowers since childhood.  There were no ponds or lakes where we lived so I only got to see waterlilies when I went to the local hospital.

I often went there  just to see the flowers and collect some special feed for my rabbits. I really don’t know what they were, but the  gardener there told me that rabbits loved that weed and they would give me many bunnies if I fed them to the rabbits. We made a deal that I would give him a pair of bunnies if my rabbits gave bunnies.

Well we did have around forty rabbits and yes you guessed it right, the gardener got his share. I  begged him for the waterlilies, but he said that the Medical superintendent would know if he pulled out the plants. Besides I would need a huge tank for those, which I clearly didn’t have then.

We became great friends the gardener and I, he was some fifty something and I was 8 at that time.  Suddenly one day things changed the gardener was not to be seen. When I asked his assistant he said that the gardener died of snake bite. I never went back to the hospital again.

When I see the waterlilies in my garden I often think of him.
