Growing in Dark


Growing In Dark

Petals slip
One by one
To rest upon the desk
Lonely and forgotten
As daylight
Leisurely fades to night.
Dark orchids
Tell their story to the walls
Illuminated in the shadows
If only from within
Although a passing moon
Lays fleeting hands on
Long ago withered blooms.
In the momentary starlight
One new bud is
Tempting fate
Fighting just to live.
Growing against the odds.
From death
New life emerges.
Steady and strong
Plunged back into darkness
As clouds cover the only light,
It will continue.
