The Orange Orchid

POETRY FORMAT, 30 Aug 2021

An orange orchid silently blooms
On bare roots, forgotten but has its own perfume.
The colorful buds emerge, like little orange balloons
Swallowing the world as she blooms,
Nothing can compare to her beauty
No matter if you have feelings of gloom.

She stands so full of grace!
Her petals the dew drops embrace,
Untouched her petals gleam
Her beauty formed while we dream.
Such strength, this orchid has taken months to blossom.
Her petals are like our soul
Giving life to the body and mind

Only a Mighty God is so kind
So, enjoy the orange orchid
As she stands in the sunlight and wind.
Her beauty is a gift to mankind.
So impeccable, and difficult to find.

Dr Usha Roopnarain – Former parliamentarian in the National Assembly of South Africa, social activist and passionate about human rights and gender equality.
