Why does an orchid appear to dance and sing?

Why does an orchid appear to dance?

 

It spends many months taking lashings from clouds

 

Then feels the relief from its rolled up fists.

 

Sensing the sun beating down on its cap

 

It opens its limbs like a maid gliding free

 

And why does it appear to sing?

 

It spends many months with its wing in a tie

 

Till smothering clouds take their shadows awry

 

It loosens its petals to stretch out its tongue,

 

A diva that trills beneath a naked sky.
