Urban Iris

all is quiet as the sun settles behind
the tall buildings of white, black
rooftops, some with gardens, urban
irises peeking through the rails to
catch a last glimpse of another day
closing, before the nightlife takes
over the streets and brings the day-
sleepers to pavement, dancing, singing,
meeting with loved ones and strangers,
to keep life interesting, fresh and new,
while the Greek Rainbows slumber,
in beds of acidic soil, organically secure,
the dark evening sky weighs as a cover,
keeping sun exposed colors hidden
upon rooftops, til day reopens.
