Something different--a poem. The photos were taken by Rudy, the Husband. Enjoy. bobbi c.
The large patch of goldenrod that blooms
outside my office window
swarms with millions of bees.
Millions of happy bees.
So glad I didn't cave to busy-body passerby-people
who thought I should have cut it down last year!
And so glad their advice to drench the soil with poison
to keep it away--forever--went unheeded.
They have no love for the bees.
So glad I was patient, waiting for the rains that
finally came and for the sigh of relief from my garden.
I almost could hear it.
It's the same sigh I hear from this swarm of bees
Happily feeding outside my window.
For now, safe, and sated.
