I am like a purple iris
Mkxed into an ocean of blue flowers.
Although my feet are firmly rooted in the ground,
I sway slightly in the breeze,
always searching for the sun.
I am similar to those around me,
I constantly look for ways to
Improve - to become stronger.
Sometimes, I feel lonely,
And other times I join in
The blue flowers' fun.
When the separation hurts too much,
I picture a cozy wood fire with
A happy family and roasted veggies.
One of of the best things
Is to follow the sound of water
Somtimes it leads me to
Children's laughter - my favorite.
Sometimes, it brings me to silence -
Both empty and full.
My happy place is the open
Feeling of freedom and security:
Blowing in the warm air with
My friends, the sun
Shining on my face.
Like a purple iris
In a field of blue,
I am confident,
Because the earth shares its secrets:
Remember to breathe and smile
And the heart will fill with peace.
