quietly linger

this is positively the most beautiful natural thing i've seen

each year for Mother's day i take my mom to "the Iris Lady's"
she has a field full of irises... waving flamboyantly in the sun
and each year, my mom invites a new charmer into her own garden flock
we love this tradition
the blooms grow and divide
my mother's garden reminds of all the times we've celebrated together
someday they are to be heirlooms to the women in our family

although the magnitude of colors is overwhelmingly beautiful
a floor rainbowed with flora

subtlety and delicacy won me over with this bloom
sometimes the quiet ones are most deserving of a lingering eyes, hearts, and minds
