Poetry: An Orchid’s Death

In a vision-I
heard an orchid
bleed red and die
I woke me from my
troubled sleep.

From this sound
came my vision
of waking from sleep
because an orchid
die right then.

From the meaning
I had heard enough
yet had seen no vision
as yet and I never did.

So strange that a
vision could sense
but make no sound
and see nothing but
and orchid did
die then.

In a dream-I
saw a vision there
and it sounded
so very dead and
was so intensely red
as I slept an orchid
faded away.
