White cattleya

that tear
on your cheek
almost incongruous
a dancer
on an empty stage

but my heart fluttered
and i was lost

White hibiscus

a shadow
moved across my dreams
last night
a lonely tear drop
on my cheek

was it you?

White bougainvillea

embraced in His arms
i hardly noticed
fragile and innocent
you beckoned

but i turned
to brush a tear
and you were gone.

of a time
your fingers trailing
an essence intoxicating

i succumb

can we ever return?

Dendrobium crumenatum - Pigeon orchid

Dendrobium crumenatum - Pigeon orchid

i weep
the fallen giants

excoriated from the earth
to feed the greed
in our souls

their silence
a deadly wound

Wrightia religiosa - shui mei 水梅

Wrightia religiosa - shui mei 水梅

silent breathing
i close my eyes

a fragrant remembrance
of jasmines

long ago
from whence
comes my hope
