Poetry Thursday 5

 Two ways of looking at the same thing.

Using the same source of inspiration here are two Tanka style verses about the same subject.

The Orchid

The beauty of Earth
Held in a perfect flower
God's hand in action
Smiling childlike in wonder
Hypnotising beholders

A sinister face
Yet terribly beautiful
A rictus of death
The flower draws the victim
To its beautiful bosom

God Bless
