Ru-Bee-n and the Dove

.




                                Broken Butterfly feeding
                                on nectar from my flowers
                                _"These are my...Don't bite me...Ouch!
                                ...Lepidoptera!"

                                I will keep my proboscis
                                and my stinger for the spring
                                when the Maltese dove returns
                                Charmaine, where are you!

    Smile ˜ I feel like a hummingbird diving into the honey hive of sweetness with loving bumble bees kissing colourful butterflies dancing amid the gardens perfumed breeze * Smooch me, my love, Always, John!:) ˜
