Wild Orchid

The
Wild
Orchid
Swayed
Gently
In the
Breeze.

img_1248_400As Silver
Moonlight
Washed
The desert
Sands.

My warm
Hands licked
By crackling
Flames;as
I reflected
Deeply in
The dancing
Flames,the
Strange and
Foreign hands.

The
Caravans
In deserted
Lands

Cascading
On the
Desert
Sands.

Parading
Soldiers of
Oran.

The hungry
Locusts of
Sudan.

The bowing
Emperor
Of Japan.

All these
Images,
Washing
Themselves
Like a
Rusted
Groaning
Hulk over
The sand-bank
Of my soul.

Then, fondly I
Remembered
Under the
Washing silver
Moon,
The wild
Orchid gently
Swaying
In the breeze.
