Who would believe
that a grocery store Iris
could be beautiful,
that they do not absorb
rows of shampoo
or a building’s
inelegant charm?
Yet, velvety buds
of blue and yellow
peek from stiff green stems
waiting for someone’s
cart to slow in front
of its simple secret.

Iris, whether in your garden or the Harris-Teter, are simply the very best. My father grew them, along with gajillions of others bulbs and plants and seeing them helps me remember his elegant charm and sweet loving manner. Oh, how I miss that man.

Your comment almost made me cry. They sounded like you were describing the friend that we know named Janice. Now we know where it comes from.
