"Seduction of an Iris" by Gene Hodge

"Iris" Watercolor on Paper
By J. Artemus Gordon
Seduction of an Iris
Gene Hodge

Her petals, heavy with morning dew,
shimmer like lip gloss
in the April sunlight.
Mesmerized . . .
I kneel— like a knight before his queen—
lean forward and gently smell her flower.
Perfumed fragrances bewitch me 
and I drift into her private chamber—
seduced and made prisoner to ecstasy.

Poet’s Notes:  I am a lover of the majestic iris.  This is my tribute to her beauty.
