Like a Purple Iris in a Sea of Blue

Wed, 03/04/2015 - 20:59 -- Shaila


I am like a purple iris

Mkxed into an ocean of blue flowers. 

Although my feet are firmly rooted in the ground,

I sway slightly in the breeze,

always searching for the sun. 


I am similar to those around me,

Yet different. 

I constantly look for ways to

Improve - to become stronger. 


Sometimes, I feel lonely,

And other times I join in

The blue flowers' fun. 

When the separation hurts too much,

I picture a cozy wood fire with

A happy family and roasted veggies. 


One of of the best things 

Is to follow the sound of water

Somtimes it leads me to

Children's laughter - my favorite. 

Sometimes, it brings me to silence - 

Both empty and full. 


My happy place is the open 

Feeling of freedom and security:

Blowing in the warm air with

My friends, the sun

Shining on my face. 


Like a purple iris

In a field of blue,

I am confident,

Because the earth shares its secrets:

Remember to breathe and smile

And the heart will fill with peace.
