Heliconia Seven

   a favorite, it 
      grows in a
warm place,
   somewhere
i've never been.

      several years 
have gone now
   and there may
be no way back.

exotic and bright,
   it pleased me:
   something so 
strange and
      wonderful.

   tropical sun
powers colour
to overwhelm

my temperate
   vision, and
i am almost
      blinded.

  1. I love the way you describe your direct experience, Murray, and explore some of the places in your heart yoo. Very Buddhist…
    Thank you for all the pleasure you share with us, and the sadness and wise reflections too. May 2021 blossom and flourish for you and for us all xx
