The English Classroom

A HELPFUL GUIDE FOR PRESERVICE AND GRADUATE TEACHERS

Purple flames, brooding and supple

Licking air like crisp little bubbles

Amber innards, sand upon the beach

Overlapping the lilac treats

Pulsing fractals spreading across the petal

Reaching across silk, crafting its fettle

Light pierces the fabric skin

And the plum silk becomes thin

Droplets magnify the lilac strip

Drooping the petals from their lip

But the heat roasts the orchid’s birth

And the orchid melts into the earth
