Bee orchids

Grass broidered
and purple-beed
beneath a true golden sun

the season turns
to humming and trilling
fluting whistling

and the trees sway
leaf-lilting gently

great green ships
on a rich sea.

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚ I love bee orchids. They do look like bees inside a pink flower, but I like the way they flowers are set at different angles, as if they’re turning their heads ๐Ÿ™‚
