  • The Orchid Flower
    by Sam Hamill

    Just as I wonder
    whether it's going to die,
    the orchid blossoms

    and I can't explain why it
    moves my heart, why such pleasure

    comes from one small bud
    on a long spindly stem, one
    blood red gold flower

    opening at mid-summer,
    tiny, perfect in its hour.

    Even to a white-
    haired craggy poet, it's
    purely erotic,

    pistil and stamen, pollen,
    dew of the world, a spoonful

    of earth, and water.
    Erotic because there's death
    at the heart of birth,

    drama in those old sunrise
    prisms in wet cedar boughs,

    deepest mystery
    in washing evening dishes
    or teasing my wife,

    who grows, yes, more beautiful
    because one of us will die.
