Eileen's Orchid

An orchid from Eileen.

An orchid from Eileen.

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

yellow ochre,
Light golden rod,
Lime & tinges of green,

Petals & sepals opening
showing off
their inner finest
column & colours.

Tall dark green stems &
wide leaves too,
seven flowers in bloom
nine more to come.

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