An orchid in a deep forest sends out its fragrance even if no one is around to appreciate it.- ConfuciusWith a beauty rare, unparalleled, exotic
Hiding within them power hypnotic
Delicately assembled, they are symbolic
Of love and desire; paeans hyperbolic
Are appropriate for their splendor
In amazement you look at them and wonder
God at the zenith of His creative prowess
Must have designed this floral grandness..
Exalted to the status of artwork, these flowers
Have been the pride and envy of collectors
Many a perilous expedition inspired
To find that rarest orchid desired
By connoisseurs willing to pay any price
To display them as a possession prized
Singular in their growth, soil they do not need
Their shapes can be fairly unique indeed
Love, perfection, refinement and grandeur
Represent the images that orchids conjure
They are emblems of countries and territories
Adding to their long list of glories..
A feast for the eyes, a treat delicious
Are these orchids, sensual and luscious..
