X ~ Friendly Flower

Xenophilia—
Xerophyte xylobium
xing Xi, Xingú

Written as part of a series of Alphabet Haiku

This one is a nonsense poem, but it does make sense from a certain point of view. Here is my interpretation:

Xenophilia = attraction to strangers
Xerophyte xylobium = an orchid, accustomed to dry conditions
Xing = crossing
Xi = a river in China
Xingú = a river in Brazil
[presumably as a friendly gesture, to meet the flowers that grow there]
