Black Orchid

Black orchid
the dark pink center 
softens your gaze 
hidden among the wild
stately and elegant 
a house of green charms 
surrounds the blooms 
long leaves tell stories  
hot house closed off
from rain and thunder 
Her fruit branches out...
in each color a spirit... 
and silence in the details 
of her song
