Be Still

from Thomas Merton:

Be still
Listen to the stones of the wall
Be silent, they try
To speak your

Name
Listen
To the living walls.
Who are you?
Who
Are you?

These iris and many more belong to my neighbor on Lakeshore Drive. They are a highlight of my walks with Bella. I have three blooming myself, along with my lilac bush, which is groaning under the weight of all the blossoms. They are the color of pale lavender silk.
Suddenly the air is friendly and caressing, the daylight seems to last forever and the color is everywhere. In Michigan, spring is a miracle!
