Where Bumbles Bounce

Flitting and buzzing in a playful, poetic dance a whirr of delicate wings crescendos and decrescendos among a colorful carpet of sumptuous, silky petals. Daring drones speed dizzily about barely resting, constantly competing in a crazy chase for their sticky prize. Swooning with drunken lust they dream of its sappy sweetness and long for its golden glory. Insect tongues sip and suckle in tandem drinking greedily with delight to the full. Soon they whisk away with their sticky stash to unseen combs. And I wonder where they go and how their delectable delight grows in that hidden world that only nature knows. Written on 9/14/2019

Images danced before my eyes -- and I imagined I was a honey bee, so many flowers to sample . . . live and love generously.
