From the lake was inspired by the following Zen poem taken from the Buddhacarita:

'A lotus unsoiled by the dust of passion,

Sprung from the lake of knowledge;

A sun that destroys the darkness of delusion;

A moon that takes away the scorching heat

Of the inherent sins of existence.'

(The Buddhacarita, Book XIV)

Stylistic references to romantic music have been used as both emotional and syntactic codes appearing and disappearing throughout the piece in interlaced fashion.
