Be Present; Be Always Alive: Lessons From SemperVivum And Iris (#183)


Delicate, fragile, fleeting;


Gently swaying in the breeze.

The Beauty of Iris


Sits and spreads

And lives beneath mention.

No great artist

Ever drew its visage.

Semper Vi

Iris lives brief,

Its days of bloom.

In the moment;


Semper Vi

Always alive;

Lives long;


Love and Grace and Gratitude,   Annie

ps. SemperVivum is more commonly known as “hens and chicks.”
