Calling the bees & rain


sting & ravish
lilac petals like furious bee

blue the grey sky, honey the chilling air
spring buzzes in your mind

rain,
you wake 
me up 
spilling thick 
strokes of liquid 
on my face-
i lean forward
full of want-

  4. These micro-jewels rock the prompt, and the images are stunning; like the second one a lot, the lines /I lean forward/full of want/ like Spring, you teaser, you give me fever. Nice job in few words.

  9. Yes! The first exactly captures the anticipation of springtime! The second is both sensuous and sensual - and the image deepens the text! Fine poems, Grace.

  11. Lovely words and photos! After a very rainy winter in my part of the world, I cannot say I would welcome the rain on my face but I know that during very hot summers I do!

  12. There's passion in both of these ... bees are passionate about bringing about spring and I love the way you describe the want of rain :) Really good poems!

  27. They're both lovely. I particularly like the first. How brave to use inversions in this day and age - and they are perfectly judged..

  30. a mild winter here, but I know the rest of the country got hit hard....lovely tone you have set with the macro photo and poems

  31. I'm sure the bees can't wait to get back to work there. Do bees hibernate? Made me wonder... Love the rain bending the leaf...full of want. Just lovely, Grace.

  32. "honey the chilling air"
    This is a beautiful line - what a lovely read.

    ReplyDelete
  33. These are both wonderful, but that first one really has me longing for bees and flowers. Lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Once the flowers arrive, I will be like one bee deprived of nectar for so long, just as you described.

    Your rain poem reminded me of raindrops on a summer day - just utterly blissful. :-)

    Ah, bummer about that snow storm recently. Winter just doesn't seem to want to go away.
