For the Love of Iris
Form: Cerispring Sonnet

Beneath the ground she waits so long
through Winter's chilling grip
and I await her iris song.
She thirsts for words from Gardener's lip
to greet her anxious sprout-
emerging form her earthen slip.
as warming rays of Spring's first sun
awaken breath, new life's begun.
My blue iris shall blossom out
her golden kiss, a spark
to clear the heart of Winter's doubt.
Renewing signs erase the stark
of Winter's icy chill
And love will shine from in the dark
