W is for White Heron Orchid

Rarest of them all
beauty unsurpassed
disappearing from sight
man’s consuming plight

Fly away beauty
to a land far beyond
to lush tropical forests
no damaging fleet of tourists

White Heron of times long past
hold tight with the knowledge
though few you are today
help is truly on the way

Note: The White Heron Orchid is indigenous to China, Japan, Korea and Russia. Due to deforestation, it is now on the Endangered Species Register.

    Your poem is lovely. It’s a beautiful match to a beautiful flower. How sad we continue to destroy the natural habitat.
