At Times I Am A Flower – Poem by Muse

~At Times I Am A Flower~
~
At times I am a flower…
Singularly defined.
~
At times I am a flower…
Serendipitously designed.
~
At times I am a flower…
Existing with my stem.
~
At times I am a flower…
Blowing in the wind.
~
At times I am a flower…
Frightened by waters deep.
~
At times I am a flower…
Who grows worried in her sleep.
~

At times I am a flower…
Who assuredly cannot swim.
~
At times I am a flower…
Who fears her own end.
~
At times I am a flower…
Who sees miracles on high.
~
At times I am a flower…
Whose friends lift to me to the sky.
~
At times I am a flower…
Lifted up in gentle prayer.
~
At times I am a flower…
And I thank Heaven you are there.

~ Greek Poetry – White Iris by Muse ~

~White Iris~
The Iris danced across
The ancient Grecian skies
Gliding with her embossed
Satiny milken sides
~
Her lithe and nimble limbs
Moved methodically
From her cream white petals
To her supple stem.
The nectar that she carried
Was transposed into a hymn
~
“I must use my moments wisely,
For they shall soon pass away
And be lost to me forever…
A mere memory of my yesterdays.”
~
Thus she sang
And thus she cried.
Her voice set to harp
And lyre.
~
So true a call
So true a heart
Did Zeus himself see?
“Come now unto Mt Olympus
Oh white Iris,
And our announcer be…”
~
She floated along
In such curving grace
Transposed she was
In time and space
The blessed arched path
Which she did go
Became the journey for
Heaven’s promised rainbow.
