Renewal

img_20200409_181926The pear tree in the front yard is pretty close to the second floor porch. So we get to witness a bit of nature up close. The pace at which nubby buds change to to delicate blossoms is so interesting to watch. So we are blessed with having blooms, and pears within arms length.

An even more fun bonus of this proximity is being able to keep company with the visiting birds, bees and butterflies. So amidst this upheaval nature marches on, creating this space of respite.

in search of renewal
I bury my head
in the captivating blooms
of the pear tree –
a lone sparrow joins me

A Quadrille

On Garden culture –

Ants are about hauling several times their weight

Bees and butterflies share a flower
Showing no interest in exerting power

Just what have they figured out that we have yet to?

Maybe some day soon it’s something we’ll get up to

Inspired by the winner of our second kukai “summertime”, Lolly is being featured this month on CDHK. There is a ebook of hers on the CDHK site. You should stop by for a read or a download, follow the link below.

For this episode Lolly writes:

spring tidings …

a message of the flowers
to decipher
a secret little alphabet
that begins with a bee

My attempt:

in a butterfly’s world

forage for nectar is far

from being

the ‘bees knees’
