Iris

Lashes fall from heavens,

tears cascading from skies.

Cloudy brows of sorrow,

are overcasting eyes.

.

Oculus of torment,

reflect a soul that’s lost.

Radiating mizzle,

raining their faith is quashed.

.

Iris lives in rainbows,

catching teardrops in light.

Lining mists with silver,

making the darkness bright.

.

Weary hearts enlightened,

so retinas can shine.

Iris is a goddess,

her colours are divine.
