55-I Love Irises



Chapters of my life are turning purple, green, gold,
There is fragrance of burning as nights grow cold.
The flagged footsteps with iris galore
of the most mysterious thoughts never appear before,
The air is filled with sweetness,
I love irises,
The symbol of life, love, and light.
Pray to God, Everything will be allright.

Leeuna said...

The poem is beautiful. I've always loved Irises. They are among my favorite flowers. Great job.

Katherine said...

Jingle they were 55 very pretty words & one very pretty picture. Lovely post!

Alan Burnett said...

I always have an ambivalent attitude towards irises, there is something that can be just a little disturbing about them. I thought your poem captured that ambivalence very well.

transparentnow? said...

I love poems and flowers and poems about flowers. This one started my day w/a smile. Happy day to you Jingle!

Jill said...

Beautiful Ji!
I love Iris too...so lovely.

Yvonne Osborne said...

I love irises too! Mine are just starting to pop, purple and yellow, so pretty together. I love "fragrance of burning as nights grow cold, flagged footsteps with iris galore."
Beautiful, truly.

Dom* said...

Beautiful colours of this flower
As it grows with sunshine and showers
Sitting so daintly blowing in the breeze
Floating in the wind with the greatest of ease
Enjoyed by ones mind eye
With each passing moment that the clouds go by....

enjoy Jingle and Happy Friday to you(+)
soulbro*:)

This is so beautiful, Jingle, and such a powerful sentiment, a great 55.

drybottomgirl said...

Love this! I have massive irises in a purple that almost looks black. It is such a treat to have them bloom even for a short time. Great imagery. Thanks for visiting my blog and I am slowly getting to peek at all the people who stopped by to comment on "Gracie's Favorite". Have a great weekend!

Larry said...

yes it's a true story I really hated to do what I did but then again he's been getting gas from me for quite some time now. I finally decided the only way to stop this is to step into a lower place than I like to be. So I bought five dollars of gas and then filled the rest of the can with water and placed it back in the truck with the rest of my equipment as I always did. The neighbor figured out that I filled my tanks for my gardening tools every Sunday night. He'd hit me early Monday Or Tuesday morning. I waited up at night just to see if I'd catch this guy and I finally did he thought he was slick doing what he was doing so I had to show him who was smarter than the average bear and it's going to cost him money just to clean out the gasline and the gas tank as you all know gas and water don't mix I really don't think he'll ever do it again if he does he's more of an idiot than I thought.

Mr. Stupid said...

Irises are very beautiful. Nice 55. Loved it...:)
Toodles!

Kimberly said...

I really enjoy your posting of poems they are very lovely. I remember in the 4th grade I bought my first book of poems, and got into my first fight. My best friend and I fought over the book. I allowed her to borrow the book and she would not give it back. Our friendship was never the same.

Reader Wil said...

A great idea, but it's very difficult to write good poetry, let alone in a foreign language. English is not my mothertongue.
Lovely irises, Jingle!

Serline said...

Great poem, although I have to confess my hubby is the word smith in the family and does most of the texts on my blog as well. The last 2 lines are very applicable to us in Bangkok right now...

H said...

Great poem! I hadn't thought of posting in poetic style. Hmmm - I think I'll try one some time soon!
Thanks for visiting :)
