and revealing myself one poem at a time
the world’s business
a ruby glow --
the bees are drunk
Oh my, and I thought I was the only one who read more into Georgia O'keefe's flowers....(I posted one about that, too!)I agree with you, drunk on cherries and a stamen in your pocket?
This is gorgeous!!
Lovely poem, I love the bees being drunk on cherries.Intense rich and colourful.Fablo!
The perfect spirit for a Monday. Thank you!
A gorgeous accompaniment to this painting, which I've always loved for its layers and immersion. lipsfrom lovingraw witnessThis is an exquisite line that's left me a little lightheaded this morning, Karen!
I drank this in with a wide open rosy mouth. It's a gray drizzling morning here, cold enough for my jacket, and your vibrant red work is welcome. Thank you for your remark on my poem, too.Cheers from Chris
Karen I have seen drunk bees in a sugar plant where the liquid sugar leaks a bit out of valves in the open. They act like a swarm and then drink so much that they basically pass out. I am told they are safe to handle because they are too passive after gorging on sugar syrup like that.As for red in flowers - that is pure sex. Hooah!
Beautiful! I love the image of flowers, and I adore the line "raw witness." It is a wonderful line, and it echoes so nicely in "the world's business," which is another great line. Nope...nothing angry here. Just pure sensual beauty.
It has been more than a decade but I want to be a bee again. Everyday. You can make bourbon from cherry mash right?
Lovely poem--I really like the slant rhyme between "witness" & "business"!
exquisite writing Karen. the ending pulls this all together nicely. hope all is well.

brown eyes-it read like a door opening and then a glow from within at just the right moment. the succinctness of the last line was wonderful! ~rick
Rick - Can't say too much in response to that - just thanks! Heh!
