Orchid (part 2)

The air is hot and thick. It’s hard to breathe. The sun beats down oppressively and I am dazzled by the brilliant colors surrounding me. Closing my eyes, I listen. Can I hear something other than my own heartbeat?

Something overhead. Slowly, I open my eyes to see doves flying by, but in slow motion. I watch until they disappear. The sun is setting.
