Penning a note
to daughter.

Clothing ready

have your tea,
one hour of tv,
then homework &

Your ‘island stone’
is placed within

pencilled heart!
See you soon,
love Mummy x

Eileen’s Phalaenopsis

Eileen’s Phalaenopsis

Pride of place on the kitchen table
two long wispy darkened stems,
seven perfectly formed flowers
proudly showing off
their palette of yellowy green,
nine growing buds slowly
emerging, snatching
the daylight from the window.

An orchid from Eileen.

What a surprise!
this beautiful twin-stemmed
phalaenopsis orchid,
sent with loving thoughts.

Light golden rod,
Lime & tinges of green,

Petals & sepals opening

Tall dark green stems &
wide leaves too,

One day, I will arrive
on Eileen’s doorstep
and return this
