Flower for the Day IrisIV 5-18-16

This  stand if iris is in a field circle guarded by part of Russ Filippello's Master's thesis.
Jan's new purple Adirondack chair is placed in the circle to enjoy the woods.

My Mother's Iris

I sleep under the wing
of night, singing
the long winter

requiem, stealing
purple out of the black
earth. I dream flesh

is made flower, bulb
is made heart, leaf
and stem unfurl

like new flags
breaking into light,
bearding the world again

Jane Vincent Taylor
