Bumblebee in a Foxglove Flower









I am a bumblebee
in a foxglove flower
where my summerfields
touch the summerlands,

landscapes shifting like plates
across the sensile skin of the earth,
binding together like dream places
separated by nothing but a love of honey,

dizzy drinkings inspiring more flight,
turning and returning,
pollen dust coating fur and legs,
inner bliss of a bumblebee mind

filling every foxglove flower,
in purple palaces and golden springs
sipping on ecstasy until the petals fall
and the worlds drift apart again.

  1. That’s lovely, Lorna, melodic and fanciful . . . accurate and not clinical . . . I have taken to watching the bumblebees this year and they are quite remarkable creatures. The last two lines cast a bittersweet shadow that reminds the cycle turns and life is precious and fragile as a flower.
