Orchid Show

My husband took me to the annual orchid show at our local botanical gardens this past Saturday. Orchids are my favorite flowers, outside of roses. I took way more pictures, as I also had my Nikon with me. These are my favorite ones from my phone. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Volcanic Islands

9b55bba8a9b8a67e24e4a1018a8df
Fire meets water
In a spectacular way
Adding to an isle
Most every day
Hot red and cool blue
Collide in a burst of steam
Creating a vicious landscape
Often only seen in dreams
An island appearing dull
Cloaked in garb gray
Until it begins glistening
Drowning in salty spray
Giving the concrete lava
A particular type of gleam
Heightened in the peak
Of the sun’s beating beams

* Author’s Note: This Poetry Thursday was inspired by none other than the nature documentaries on Netflix from the BBC. If I don’t have music on in the background while I’m writing, I’m watching (and re-watching) documentaries. Even as a child, I was fascinated by documentaries. A dream of mine is to travel the world, photographing plants, animals, weather, and everything in between. I’ve always loved nature, and I have a feeling I always will.
