-Garden in the Grave-

-Garden in the Grave- 

Watching as an orchid's 
last petal drifts 
helplessly to the ground,
I realize that I am 
witnessing natural art
in the making...

For it's body;
frail, wilted, and dry,
withers within it's
seedlings vast plot.
Preserving the following 
generations with it's 
nourishing memories and

Forever more, this 
orchid shall be know as nothing 
less than a Garden within its
own Grave...

    A beautiful sad tribute to the Orchid. We have many in our garden and it is always sad to see one die. Great Poem!
