Red Miltonia Orchid

She drew the curtains

allowing a laser-like beam of sunlight

to pierce the room

The light shone on her face

leaving a pencil silhouette

watching her.

She glanced slightly behind

and saw that other parts of the

room were now also illuminated.

Her searching eyes got wider

And focused on a flowering plant.

A Red Miltonia Orchid.

As the aroma grew stronger

her body vibrated

her heart expanded

and her shadow was

no more.

She remained,

lost in the beauty

of the petals and sepals

where time and space

were no more.
