Yellow Orchids

Yellow Orchids

Yellow Orchids by Liz West CC BY 2.0


Sweet vanilla permeates the senses


like liquid sunshine


the air

perfect petals open

dragon mouths

in a silent roar

an orchid song

as they perch along

wiry stems

glowing in their glory

  1. thanks for your response to the photo prompt Kim 🙂

    it’s as elegant as the flowers themselves … and I like the reference to the dragon’s mouth roaring 🙂

    Cheers ~ Pat
