Iris

Iris full

Deep pink-purple haze

A blink, the horizon

Awash with rainbow colours

Touching everything

Turquoise slides indigo

Every

Rainbow colour

Bathing the earth

Visible with the setting

Look hard

Every

Dazzling spectra shade

Here, there, on you

Without even knowing

Without a drop being shed

Simply

Alive adorning every

Sparkling particle

Suspending the air

Stained across the heavens

Always

Hold your breath

As long as you can

Every half-beat

The colour of angels

Tangible,

Un-missable, visible

◄ The way you walk

Buried Birds ►

I clicked this link because I love the song by Goo Goo Dolls.

This poem really paints the beautiful nature of the world, and it's true majesty.

I very much liked the overall effect of this Moira and even though you have it tightly packed you could drop all 'the' words which IMO would make it even tighter

a worthy dedication to mother nature i feel such imagery truly does it justice, "her" up there would appreciate it ;-)
