Blue orchid

                    I heard about orchids once

                    that there are species which will not bloom
                    every season
                    like clockwork.

                   On the outside they appear barren,
                   producing nothing. But under
                   the dirt there is movement.

                   the roots are expanding and gathering,
                   listening to the world above. Wait.

                   When conditions are right, buds will unfold
                   and make you gasp
                   with gratitude.
