Seek Ye First . . .

The Daily Post prompt for July 11 was Born to Be With You.  This prompt asked for a description of a soul-mate and/or best friend.  I thought of Matthew 6: 33 and seeking God first.

gentle spring winds
in evergreen trees
the friendship we grew

fragrance of leaves
in the gardens
what good friends
we became
as we grew older

sunrise
river of light
along the evergreens
the friends who stayed

I took the photo at the beginning of the post yesterday, after rain.  Here is the iris as it first bloomed.
