on time

BOOM!
I have time all over my hands
it runs between my fingers
I walk through Sunday stunned
by the smell of the river
the humidity of the air
the taste of rain in the breeze
peach blossom in the city
a bumble bee, as big as a thumb,
nosing into a crocus, bending the stalk
busy drinking, as I am free to do
if I choose
to spend my time drinking
in now
all I have is time

bee

visiting
attracted
then distracted
or discerning
the trace of others
before
moving on
or back
to one you know
still open
with a taste
you know
and trust
for now

On Ranting

When you’ve quite finished

look at this beautiful day

birds and bees, flowers

n.b. NaPoWriMo 2021 Day Nineteen prompt: a rant.

Meanwhile here, a million miles away, it is spring. For that I am truly grateful. 😎

On Wealth

Although pollen rich

Sweet scent of nectar still draws

The bee far from home
