P. holochila Poem

This poem is an image poem, where the poetry forms together to create a solitary image. The orchid described in this poem, Platanthera holochila, is a rare Hawaiian Orchid that I worked with during my undergraduate studies. I was inspired to write this poem after I was able to see one of the orchids bloom for the first time.
