Flowers and Drunken Bees

Flowers in the rain
Petals open to sustain

Life that is and is to be
Crouched in hidden expectancy

Bees by colors in delight,
Arrested, nay, beguiled, alight.

To sip and gather on furry feet
Nectar and pollen of life so sweet.

Flower to flower in drunken run
Dance the mystery now begun.

  1. Wonderful! Such a lovely way to talk about such a seemingly insignificant thing. Ah, the beauty of creation…


    • Thank you very much. I’m glad I found your blog and will be back for your stories. God works wonders and transforms our suffering when we let Him into it. But then you already know that. Many blessings!
