Butter Yellow

I bought these a few weeks ago, they are still in bloom at a bright spot near the window. We are up to week three, with a diet of indirect sunlight and three ice cubes once a week – we seem to still be keeping company. Orchids have a mind of their own. Mostly, I’m just along for the ride.

birds have gone silent

 

they too are caught up

in the melody of the rain

 

nature walk interrupted

as may flowers and young leaves

dance in spring rain

Bees and butterflies share a flower
Showing no interest in exerting power
