Orchids


Back in the 90’s
now a fading dream
we lived on Maui
soft tropical island

I placed orchids
in trees 
and beneath a trellis
in a garden
surrounding our home

I installed small drip lines
to bring them water
offered them food
and watched them thrive

Now in the Bay Area
I see orchids indoors
seemingly out of place

In the grocery store
a field of orchids
carries me home

  1. I also enjoy orchids – all flowers – more outdoors, closer to their natural environment. Orchids indoors seem so unreal, like they don’t belong.
