In the park, there's an old floral greenhouse,

Warm and humid, yet calm and serene house.

Koi cavort in its ponds

Beneath tropical fronds --

Our exotic escape-from-routine house.

Dr G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2023

Authors' Note: We are fortunate to have moved into an apartment building just across the street from a public conservatory whose warm, humid, glass-roofed galleries offer the visitor views and dreams of escape to tropical floral environments. Visits are especially reinvigorating on dark and depressing winter days, and admission is free!
You might also enjoy reviewing photo-enhanced poetry posts related to poinsettiaskoired-eared slidersCanadian cactuses, and Leda and the Swan at the same destination.
