Iris
a symbol
of our love
with a dozen
golden rose buds
and foliage evergreen
which
melted
this heart
liquefied to
sweet honey nectar
Iris
purplish and
of precious yellow
soft-rich, smooth and
mellow
from stem
we grew leaf
by leaf to flower
together developing our
Iris
velvety,
sleek and
showy, free
from projections
our everlasting flower
will
like
all
things,
end
up
dead.


 What comes from the heart goes to the heart.
Samuel Coleridge

The iris is one of my favorite flowers.. unfortunately, flowers do have short-lived days....
...and yet even the demise of the iris produces seeds for new blossoms, does it not??

take care, jm

If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

Lovely sentiment displayed in this piece. Although this is not my favorite type of poetry, I number this poem one of my favorites. Remember, it's not how long love blooms, it's how well.

Girl you have one better than an Iris! A love that is already in full bloom and won't fade away...
Hugs to ya girl!

Take what you have and fly
Look at your blessings
Don't let one person
Bring you down and steal the vigor

For you have life and love
And that is most precious
One who don't want to share that
Is not worth your effort or time!

So do what you can
With what you have
Where you are
And savor every moment!

Love ya! Hugs
