So...inspired by Greg's photo I made...

And...Springtime - By Nira Dabush B. - Computer/digital,2004
Then ,one day I saw Greg's photos of Iris which remind me of several  textile designs I made of Irises painted on silk.......I decided to try , combine my Irises painted on silk with the Flatirons Flower's inspirations.

To Nira :
Nine hours seems like a long time
just the other side of night
half way around the planet
it's turning to day and light
the air is still
the air is cool as Boulder falls asleep
and in my prayers and in my dreams
may you in safety keep

may your children laugh
may you be filled with gentle winds
the softest bluest skies
may you remember a song
and the way it felt
to move your feet by chance
may the rhythms of your thought
move your heart to dance
From Greg.
