Iris came to visit recently, but she’s very sensitive

and gentle, so try not to stare,

And when she’s dressed

in purple,

she’s a little shy.



Note: These are Iris flowers.

He Gave Her Everything


She blushed as they both looked up at the sky,

a gentle breeze touched her cheek

as she embraced

his humble strength, stunned

that he had given her everything,

his heart

simply draped,

in a poem.

There Will Always Be Flowers


In spite of the darkness, there will always be flowers

that bring us joy,

we will always smile, when our lover does too,

and we will always rejoice

when a cancer patient


There will always be light, there will always

be love,

and there will always be joy,

even peace

so wonderfully,

in spite of the darkness.
