...Tea and Bees...

...My lip presses against a chip

in a large white mug

I've given up sugar

and whole milk again

but the orange blossom honey

takes their place

glistening gold strands

sticking to my finger

Reminds me of bees

They are coming

They celebrate the first day of Spring

Somewhere close

hidden

In dark honeycombs

Silent

Waiting

The Queen planning

the Rest of Her Life

Blessed bees...

bringing us the thick gold love

that permeates our lives

(and our tea) with healing...

Thank you so much tokigostudio1 - I am still watching the bees now as they scurry around still collecting...so sad to see them go!
