Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Bees Knees and Me


Pollen swollen legs 
heavy with instinct
spread
pollinate
gather
aching need 

waiting blossom
yearns 
with petals open 
 for tango touch
a gentle dance 
upon her center

 sun days ahead
turn flower to fruit 
  sweet juice drips
leaving
sticky kiss on 
ripe skin

ripe for the harvest
juicy sweet to
taste on my tongue

Haha. L.L. read Neruda to me on a bench at Mt Hermon. Sent me hurtling down the sensuous poetry trail. Neruda could have taken advantage. :) [swoon]

.....and the pear blossoms outside my window, humming with busy bees
prompted me also. :) The bees and the blossoms are VERY happy.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! All of it.

Heavy with instinct. That is a great line.

Neruda, just as I thought &was it mmerubies who said 'nuff said' about that... but ahem, you are pretty darn fine with the whole yearning genre (and hon, I think I will leave that to your expertise) - have fun :)

Every bit of it taps fancifully fun across my heart! Each verse is indeed a delightful dance.

Blessings.
