An Orchid is like a Woman

Like a woman
An orchid is a beautiful flower
Like her foundation
Its stem is strong yet flexible
Like her skin
The petals are silky soft to the touch
Compared to her feminine body
An orchid's form is curvaceous
Like her beauty
An orchid is designed by nature's highest vision
And reminscent of her scent
The sweet aroma casts a spell on innocence
Like her patience
The orchid waits to bloom when ready
And similar to her endurance
Few other blossoms matches its longevity
Like a woman
An orchid has special needs to grow
Light to know which direction to face
Water to maintain suppleness
The balance of nutrients to flourish
Like a woman
An orchid can blind with good looks
Seduce the hungry
Lure entrance to trappings of sweet honey
Like a woman
An orchid thrives among nature's bounty
Is admired by countless beings
Like a woman's inner beauty of generosity
Orchids share multiple flowers on a single stem
As only a woman's face can, the orchid gleams in the moonlight
Most of all
A woman is like an orchid wanting, needing loving care

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
