-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 essence... Forever more, this orchid shall be know as nothing less than a Garden within its own Grave... -Anonymously youRs- (Copyrighted to "DigitallyDefectiveArt")

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