Words by Silvi Alcivar
Inspired by the Orchid Room at the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers and premiered there on June 9, 2012.

lyrics

Enter this room she said, giving permission
to breathe the petals of breath orchids steal and give
reminding us life begins like this
in the beauty of being
delicate and gasping
crying out in streaks of red

Everything we are is
held in the gift of being alive
Everything we will ever be is
returning to soil and seed

Enter this room she said, the rarest orchids are blooming again
there's a silence in the words she says
a giving permission
and offering
the beauty of being
and being reminded
we are this orchid
delicate and gasping
petals and petas

Everything we are is
held in the gift of being alive
Everything we will ever be is
returning to soil and seed
