Bees

Bee visiting a poppy in bloom at Mission San Juan Capistrano, Southern California
 


From bees of either gender
I tend to run and hide.
I fear that they will harm me
The longer I’m outside.
 
Indoors, away from stingers,
I find a book or two
To while away the daylight,
Until the bees are through.

one glimpse of summer—
just beyond the courtyard fence
the fading blossoms

long before sunset
even the wren stops singing
to heed the bell’s toll

tolling a bell for all seasons

driven by the wind
temple bells tear time into
ten thousand pieces
