I know, tonight
I will be dreaming of a New Summer,
of a time of fragrant blooming and new scents
of reborn perennials, of gloriously alive annuals.
And the gardens,
at stages filling up with burgeoning colours,
the landmarks of expedite or leisurely walks,
the orange trumpets, yellow daisies
and purple spikes and candid cosmos,
all shades and shapes of botanical bliss.

And the bees?
Floating on and around
the flowers’ open crowns
getting their paws and jaws dirty
with the bountiful, the mighty pollen,
golden-yellow delight.

[ And thinking of it…
it’s sad how they end up
finding refuge in a warm house
to simply die by the window,
between the folds of a heavy curtain
or hanging off a netted blind,
like exhibits at some spooky art installation ]
