As the sunset falls everywhere darkens,
A glow of yellow overts to a mist,
The feeling of warmth fills the air,
A relief of sorrow they had to bare,
A tradition of a loved ones passing,
A tealight candle in a lotus flower,
Flowing down the rivers.
They, are the golden ghosts of the waters.
My poem is based on the feastival Zhong Yuan, this tradition is done everywhere but it originated from buddhism, it about honouring your ancestors by placing a tealight in a lotus and floating it down a river.
