NaPoWriMo Poetry Challenge Day 8: The Orchid


Prompt: “Poets have been writing about flowers since, oh, the dawn of time. So today, I challenge you to add your own poem to this long tradition, by finding a flower, and versifying in its honor. Happy writing!

The Orchid

                                                                       “The Orchid”

So many beautiful shades

adorn your petals.

The humble splendour

of your beauty

calms me.

You don’t bloom

without proper care

and attention;

like love.

You’re fragile

but strength lies

in your tenacious nature.
