Transformation


You rise from the grass
on tall slender stems


Decorating the borders of my pond
with your carefully wrapped secrets


I could never imagine,


From what you present
to the outside world,


The beauty you hide inside


Like a mirage
you transform before my eyes

Looking back,


It was all there for me to see,
the blueprint
of your beauty


In full bloom
I can barely remember
your previous form





That's the power of
Transformation


Siberian Iris

  8. Totally mystifying how such a frilly, ornate, jewel of a flower can come from that narrow, tightly packed bud. Your photos of it emerging, following its blueprint so perfectly, are beautiful.

  18. A beautiful transformation indeed. Sadly, my Siberian Irises were a bit of a no-show this year. Ants seem to be a problem with at least one clump. The others are overdue for division. Have a great weekend Rosemary!
