The Orchid Show

Yesterday was gray and bleak
And raw, as some days go,
But that was all forgotten at
The Garden’s Orchid Show.

It nearly knocked my socks off – 
All the colors, patterns, shapes;
It has to rank with all the greatest
Urbanites’ escapes.

The visitors all snapped away,
With camera or with phone,
To try to capture just a bit
Of beauty Nature’s grown.

Though photos don’t do justice
To that magical display,
I’ll look at them and I am sure
They’ll brighten up my day.

    It's like taking a picture of the grand canyon. You just got to be there. Thanks for bringing us along. My senses are reeling from just reading about them. :)

    I'm sure I would have ben one of those shutter-clickers had I been there too! Lovely write Ilene. Wish I had been there to see for myself but you captured enough of the beauty to share some of it with the rest of us. Well done ma'dear...All Smiles & Cheers, Terry

    Orchids have long been a symbol of love and beauty. Their sheer elegance and fascinations certainly woukd make any grey bleak day forgotten. Nicely written Ilene. Did you purchase an orchid at the show? Warm Smiles, Connie
