Amethyst torches

Here is a lovely photo by LavenderMoonGirl that reminds me of Butterfly bushes and make me long to be a hungry butterfly. And then the poem makes my butterfly heart sing. I hope the magic finds you this week.

Lavender Moon: Artist, Poet and Lover of Nature

pyramidal orchid

Pyramidal Orchids

Like Amethyst torches,

Glimmering high in

The chalk passes,

Where shimmering faeries

Dance to the sound

Of lyrical Skylarks.

I love these beautiful wild orchids (Anacamptis pyramidalis). On our walks it is often difficult not to walk on them! ย These little magical torches of the fairy world are scattered over the chalky downs of the Chiltern hills.
