yesterday i

watched through my

kitchen window

as two irises

emerged triumphant into the sunlight

brand new

the color of poetry

dewy petals


welcoming new life

i can tell by the way

they tuck into each other

they are lovers

each wind swayed movement

they draw close

ancient greek

bestowed the name iris

to this divine flower

derivation for a goddess who brought

messages from zeus

upon a bridge made

from a rainbow

to the mortal world

i say to you look

at the love that grows around you

…and still

we are
