By J Ann Crowder

Many an Orchid ’tis fair and choice; a resplendence, emanating timeless summers of summery kisses abloom
 
Many anew, florid with rosy, blushed flesh; a new innocence and gauzy perfection born
 
Betimes, simply bearing brightness like snowy clouds, emitting a pungence of perfumed aroma
 
She is efflorescent and oft gently, idyllically ripe like ginger skies breaching glory upon morning peaks sheathed in old wrinkled trunks sprouting verdant vines dangling sweet mango fruit
 
We walk jungle cliffs overlooking brined zest forming a crown of speckled, frothy waves-slapping earth’s wide belly
 
Seldom, we find Orchids red and rustic, rich with love’s strength
 
Some bloom with an extravagance of botanicals and purple blasts; a perennial grace, tropical and royal
 
Otherworldly is she, in a rarity of riveting class
 
’Tis a duality of wild virility and soft curves, gracefully formed
 
Herbaceous, ripe, harmonious in her untamable extravagance; still, alluring in her genteel bow
 
Exotic, Orchid
 
On rarest occasions we find her softness blooming within hues of diamond blues, blending with aqua marine oceans
 
A true rarity, holding essences of sublimity and spirituality, pure
 
I implore her sentiments of innocence, purity, strength, love strong, vivacious beauty, nobility, and nestled, silent treasures
 
Most of all, I aspire to her unabashed, silent whispers of heavenly realm; joyful, angel songs whispering of spirit and soul
 
Forever I bend towards her, Orchid blue
 
Rare and gifted by heaven’s shining gaze

Another ode to nature. Written May 17th, 2016.

I bow and kiss your hand for this one! We all seek "heaven's shining gaze" and lucky are those who are gifted by this. Love. Fave. Thank you Jenifer. Takes me back to Singapore where orchids are all over, in the market place, and yes in the National Orchid Garden. It was quite dizzying to be surrounded by hundreds of orchid species! But as a nature lover like you I was "gifted" with this one beautiful memory and now ever treasured with this poem!

Your metaphors are beautiful. I love your language and imagery. Your poem reminds me of a movie I saw "Adaptation" with Nicholas Cage, Chris Cooper, and Meryl Streep. Did You see it. Your poetry would have really enhanced some of the scenes
