Splash Me

Slowly, every so painstakingly
so
from where I suckled and nourished
I was annoyingly banished
from the dark safe haven of my mother’s womb
It was so bright my eyes hurt
Cold
Confused
Angry at the World
I bestowed my first cry
No messengers from up above
to announce my arrival
I invited my black hole
and I was contently swallowed whole
As life went on
for this ordinary thing
I had become
Realization sat before me
I was a wastrel
lounging in the corner
of the chasm of my life’s tragedy
As I climbed out of my abyss
Venturing unto unknown territory
A kind handsome stranger
Took me by the hand
Whilst he showed me the murals on my wall
With the stroke of the brush he
Delicately splashed me
With Paint of many colors
With adrenaline rushing
into my veins
Anodyne
I took Form
I dared to caress the Sun’s face
Not a strand of hair was scorched
I dared to swim deep into the sea
Neptune gave me the fins of a mermaid
I dared venture through the Universe
All of the Black Holes bowed before me in respect
So I dared one last dare
To stand before the Heavens
Messengers with beautiful wings
A beautiful Angel
Came to greet me
He came forward and dressed me
With the most beautiful set of wings
Attached
To the most beautiful
Golden gown
That was the softest blanket
Laid on my skin
Through the mirrors
Of the Golden Gates
I saw he had given me
COLOR
FORM
LIGHT
TASTE
PERFUME
He colored ME before The Lord, “WOMAN”

My passion has always been reading and writing, especially poems that are written from the soul. I began to appreciate the beauty of photography and art when I first entered this wonderful bubble and now I just cannot get enough of it.I love to meet new people and see their perspectives in life.
You are welcomed to enter my world splashed with the many colors and hues of the rainbow where I am true to my name, Iris. According to Greek mythology Iris was the goddess of the rainbow which in Spanish is translated to Arco Iris. The beautiful and glorious flower Iris, also proudly bears her name in her honor.

Today the color of the avatar is all that surrounds me,

Chikungunya What???

Hi everyone / Just saying hi and that yes, IRIS IS ALIVE! Well, almost. Sorry for not being here as soon as I had planned. I haven’t even done the things that I was supposed to do. First, my Sciatic Nerve is acting up again and the physical therapies have done more harm than good. I had to have an MRI done because my new doctor says he wont touch me until he sees what is going on inside. Wa…

"Live life to the fullest"

“Live life to the fullest.” These are the words J.R wrote in my personal copy of “Touched Reality”: before he signed it. Since my father is the one who still picks up the mail, I have just received it today, Sunday,and after making sure I had his signature (very most of importance to me) and taking just a glance at it, I had to run over to the computer and tell you how exc…

Will Be On and Off

Hello my dear friends / Just wanted to say hi, hope you are all well and that I will be going and coming for a while. I have many things to take care of and catching up to do but will be answering replies, mails and will be commenting when I can. Just hope that while I’ll be doing this I won’t get hooked again and then start the cycle of leaving everything behind as I sit in front of …
