A Poem For My Great Daughter: An Orchid Of Light For You
An Orchid Of Light For You
What a wonderful light you are
With a smile that goes out onto the horizon
A laugh that is it's own tune!
You are brave in your perseverance
You are a tower of dance and song
You are quiet like a little stream hiding in the woods too
For you I aim all the powers of The Great Spirit to bounce off the moon
For you I hope against the arches in the dark
For you I beg courage and kindness from the concrete of here and now
We share a thawing lake of humor still
What a great daughter you are
Though time is charging at you a wild spitting mustang
You don't ask for my perfection or your own
You need just a drop of water for your mind's light
This orchid from my heart to your own
