There Is an Orchid In My Room

It sits on a shelf unfolding

White blooms, like butterflies

About these ads

Emerging from a chrysalis

Opening soft, damp wings.

These petals stretching slowly,

Moving up, down, out

To find their fullness,

Are resurrection messengers,

Clear evidence of grandeur

About these ads

Coming from nothing that's apparent.
