Cee’s Flower of the Day: The Iris Flower

In Greek mythology Iris is a messenger goddess who travels on a rainbow to
bring messages from the god’s to mortals.  Wikipedia

The Iris flower blooms in a rainbow of colors, the Purple blossom symbolizes
royalty and wisdom.  FTD

 

The Iris Flower is my eleventh entry for Cee’s FOTD challenge

#Poetry: Gestures

Crazy Mothers, crazy fathers, everyone saving each other,
hysterical calls to cousins who call uncles who call brothers;
from San Francisco to Michigan, everyone knows you’re not
doing well.

I don’t know what Michigan looks like.

I imagine a perfect square.

There are thousands of squares in Michigan called
lawns.

There is a lake: its waters flow from corner to corner.

To my friends in Michigan. I’ve have seen Michigan. It’s beautiful.
