COLORS OF ORCHIDS

White base blushingly lavender
anthocyanin splattered breeds
progeny colored spectrum tees
mauve, warm amethyst notes
aquamarine pyloric structure
flavored yellow album picks
genius of genus in shadows
shades, cheeks of pink sunsets
fading into darker vermilion
lips touched or heart bleeding
pale lemon, fills orchid glades
purple robed memory, redeems
from sorrow, copper wings lift
alliance to sing in Andean mist
gold dragons hang, spiked spots
blotches, stained petal edges
suspends mind on distant ledges.
