Exotic orchids in the bush
phalaenopsis epiphytes
alluring pastels, deep purples
fuchsia stars, free yellow
sacred white amabilis aphrodite
rest in crevices, on limbs
and branches of charitable roble
sheltered by green leaves
with indirect light, define
a possibility space, nourished
by rain, mists, dust and movement
of air, integrating the whole
abstract elements of scene frame
the sensory splendor of metaphor
hidden from an unsuspecting mind.
