An Orchid Thrives in Iceland

Fragile, strong, appealing to the feminine.
Boldly blooming in the radiant geothermal heat.
Protected from the harshness of the North Atlantic. 
Thin sheet of glass between it and tumultuous reality
Circulating just inches from its fragile petals
... it thrives.
Contradiction of gentle beauty surviving where
Mother Nature spreads her wings and
Earth grows from the center core of molten lava.
Aren't we all just inches from tumultuous reality
… yet we too thrive.
