orchid.

Standard

never 

in spite of all efforts

have i been able

to keep an orchid alive

somehow

in spite of a pot cracked 

on the very first day

and

fingers crossed

trying to care for it

this tiny orchid

has survived

 even thrived.

 a surprise new flower emerges.

 

“patience is the art of hoping.”

present.

Standard

kinder collects pretty flowers

picked from the garden

with fairies hiding within

to give to her mom

mom will be so happy

and the fairies will too. 

 

“the fleeting flowers-

which mostly bloom for only a couple weeks-

have long served as spiritual metaphors,

and a reminder to live in the present moment.”

-National Geographic magazine
