Nectar Drunk – A Cherita


a day very well spent

the rose garden is drenched
in the perfume of the blooms

I am one with the birds,
bees and butterflies
in a nectar drunk funk

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

On Mountain Path

on a mountain path
somehow so moving
wild violets

in the garden
between colorful leaves
a late rose

(c) Chèvrefeuille

My Effort

on a mountain path
butterflies and bees are out
pollen dust on feet
