  • It entrances me, its deep purple, indigo,
    resonates with meaning I would
    love to contain like the heavy crystal
    vase holding within and watering
    the firm green stalks of some few
    of its flowers.

    light to bring out
    its color,
    I wait until the
    sun is going down

    When the photo
    is developed,
    I cannot wait.

    ...for a moment I am transported
    back to the time when all photos were
    in black and white
    for the striking photo portrays
    the Siberian iris in silhouette.

    Photo: Iris de Siberie -
    THIS is the bluish color in the Siberian iris I was trying to bring out.
