secret powers

last night I dreamed a cranefly orchid
in winter the only green



between 40 shades of brown
and lucky as a clover
I found it

Your words as lovely as that bit of green.

Ah, a bit of green! I have some dahlia's coming up. This warm weather is confusing them!

Beautiful poem. Sometimes the eyes do find what the heart is longing for.

Thanks y'all, I'm really not any good at poetry but thought I'd try to capture the feeling of the dream. I didn't remember it until the afternoon, when I was poking around in the woods near the chicken coop. (We cleaned it out over the weekend and I'm still sneezing and coughing!)
