Covets Of The Lost Orchid - Poem by KHAYA CLARENCE

Flowery bloom
chocked in fumes
of envious covets
after a botched
attempt to vivisect
it's nature.

Suddenly it dropped
in the world filled
with fury to unmeasurable-
wonders, dismissing it's
Marvellic nature.

Ow! see them chirp
like morning birds
as they observe the flower
losing it's honey to thirsty
grounds, shamefully the Orchid
in dust surrendered.

Gracefully it never withered
to please the enemy rage,
it's scent gives life to art galleries.
