You showered down the staircase, in waves of color and crystals
You left petals of pink orchids across the hallway
How coulld I remain in this place, knowing you were here
I’ll never walk down this old eroded street again,
they’re too close to what I wish was gone
The past is too much of a burden to the present I’m in,
it’s time that I walked from the pavement into the rain

Orchid Orchards

Orchid Orchards long poem

Walking through the orchards and dreaming as the soft summer wind comes lifting the scent of orchids in the air… well I’m all smiles today as last night keeps repeating its self in my mind I can still hear you
