Bumble Bees

by Maria Terezia Ferencz

pull a blanket of earth around me
tuck me in
lull me to sleep
droning a hum
yellow bumble bees
fluff puffy pillows for me
of soft daisies lush leaves
white dust ruffles of lacy queen's weeds
no longer shall I care
what walls would I need
fresh flowers soft leaves
yellow humming bees
green canopy of trees
all covering my dreams


Author's Note: Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The more I read your words, more and more memories come back of lazy afternoons, when these bees terrified me. Yet, they fascinated me, too. You set the scene so well with flowers (oh yes, Queen Anne's Lace!), clouds, and a wonderfully lazy day to be lulled by the buzz of these creatures. This is even better than Calgon. ;-)
