...Tea and Bees...

Updated on March 20, 2011

...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


In dark honeycombs



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...
