A thousand orchids, a thousand orchids,

A thousand orchids

From earth they sprang.

Their beauty destined to be a gift.

Their beauty spread a sacred blanket

Blessing new love,

Blessing the future.

"Fire Beneath: A Thousand Orchids" picks up where Louise Netherton's first collection of prose and poetry, "Passages," left off. It guides readers through her continuing journey of grief and healing as she travels through Malaysia, Cambodia, and Bali. At the end of "Fire Beneath," Netherton writes of the mountain she sees from her window. Only if she goes to the mountain does she know its secrets and beauty.


I need to experience the mountain

To see the depth of beauty,

And so in life I need

To walk with others

To know of love,

To have lived.
