The Dutch Iris bloomed and life was coloured purple.......

This morning was like any other morning
I woke tired and thoughts of the new day dawned
Work , life , people and blah blah blah…
or so I thought

my morning ritual is to sit in the garden
weather permitting of course…
enjoying the first mouthful of my morning cup of tea
white with one sugar if you please
stretching catlike and yawning

I sip my ’cuppa" half way down
before any real thoughts enter my mind
I wait for the day to embrace me
rather than me ….trying to catch the day

I guess I’m not a morning person
for obvious reasons
some like to chitter chater
as soon as their eyes are open

I on the other hand
try to blend into the background
and collect my thoughts
before speaking…I’m funny like that

Today was same old , same old
except for one thing….
as I sat and admired the beauty
of Mother Nature and all she’d gifted us

I spotted a glimpse of the colour purple
not amazing to anyone else but me
I sat quietly and stared
at the new bloom
my first Dutch Iris of Spring

my heart was overwhelmed
as the tears flowed freely
for this morning was different
this morning made me reflect

to a place I am not yet comfortable with
my heart bleeding
I walked quietly over
to the colour purple

I touched the petals
as the tears flowed
from within my sad heart
overflowing onto my cheeks

I gently touched the centre
of the Iris …
and whispered into the breeze
I miss you…

The Dutch Iris bloomed and life was coloured purple.......
