Orchids in Hawaii

national gardens
have so much
to offer us

plants like orchids
from many places we 
have never been

we've been to
a few hot places,
where you must
eat ice cream

melting (sweating) 
bodies under a 
mediterranean sun

(and maybe a bit 
of summery fun)

we went for a little
respite (a break 
from winter cold)

getting away from 
long dark nights,
and too much
ice and snow

orchids don't care
wherever you've been.

they might be as pretty
as anything you've seen.
