The orchid struggled to break free of the ground.
The ground which held its stark beauty captive.
All the colors of the rainbow seeking release
from the place of its birth.  Like a bird learning
to fly, it must simply rid itself of the nest.
Then Nature would take care of all the rest.
All it takes is gumption and a certain yearning.
The power to grow of the Sun awaited it to cease
hesitating and to just spring forth in raptive
beauty and to show its magnificence all 'round.
