Lone Orchid

Lone Orchid
by Pauline Harris

A sea of poppies
In all directions
Set in this field
Off of an old base
Long since gone
Were the echoes
Of those who served
Leaving peace
But what was ours
Here to make
For we fight still
Over viewpoints
And don’t listen
To the wisdom
In the wind
Or of those who know
Written words
Or oral memories
Of how peace can be
Some choose to break
Clinging to fears
However there is
But one love
Paving the way
If only our hearts
Can open up
With healing
A common start
Shared joys
Beginnings to have
Willingly to live
Together, side by side
With one lone orchid
In a sea of poppies
Helping to guide
To Love Forward
