Flower meditation 2

The poem “The Orchid Flower,” by Sam Hamill, is longer than these three lines, but on their own they are a haiku, and, in my view, a poem unto themselves.

Just as I wonder
whether it's going to die,
the orchid blossoms

You can read the entire poem here.

The beautiful photo is by Jo English, of an orchid plant that has lived with her for many years.
