The Ecstasy in the Green Luscious Garden

18 comments

 

 

The ecstasy in the green luscious garden
flaps its wings in harmony
pert antennae sensing all the smells
in the rapture beyond the kitchen window

Lovely colors moving all around
flower to flower endlessly
cares not a bit about the past
or what the future might just be

Rubbing stamen amongst the stigma
in a style Oh so clean
purity in every blossom
here between the trees and golden honeybees

Collecting nectar sweet and no antiques
living fresh in every moment
time’s illusion not for me
beyond the world’s vast confusion

Gardening is easy.
It’s pollinating that’s hard.
It’s not just the bees!  

 

[Note:  After photographing this Ladybug, one noticed that, while covered in pollen, she was frantically intent on getting on to the next, adjacent flower.  There aren’t many of their aphid insect prey targets around in early spring; eating pollen and helping pollen producers is a wise alternative.]

Once

                                         simply minerals and water

Now

                                                 minerals and water cooperating with

a different twist,different tingly,energetic

                                                          sensation

that miraculously ebbs and flows like the

                                                                       purple sea

beautiful sea

In my birdhouse 

we take shelter from the rain

In my birdhouse

we sleep well,without pain

 

In my birdhouse  

we are safe from violent wind

In my birdhouse

we are born,we come in

[Note:  Birdhouses at my sister-in-law’s (Mary’s) and brother-in-law’s (Gary’s) place.  They were constructed, homemade, by Gary…. painted by Mary.]
