Your favorite pot this

study now
a single bee
powder tease

sigh breeze

a list
of things
to do
today

such a tiny weight
like a baby
in a swing
a spider string

blue flowers
light steps
portentous portfolio
ambitious
after evening
of Inherent Vice

as the bee busy transpires
bloom, bloom
blossoms
lobularia maritime

“by the sea, by the sea
by the beautiful sea”

milks this moment
line by line
for you
to make honey

when blissful bee lands
on tipsy flower
branch, soft strand
shakes

bee breeze blows blue dust

never get much
done in this
common loveliness
this stillness this
bee’s momentous
visit

red & white
shadows
orange wings
ocher clay
pot broken
bricks
pavers

this sitting
of course
this entry
this walk
some pics
this post
before you
get out
of bed

these lines
awake

may recede
themselves
like the bee
by the sea

  1. A lovely liturgy of finding keeping searching sneezing, and busy busy persistent-bee busy. The pictures were lavish too You are almost as prolific as the summer’s invitation. I have yet to answer it!

          1. Goes under the name of ‘Scrumpy’! Rough and lethal and turns my mild mannered husband into a prize fighter (in his head). Totally verboten for that reason.

              1. Now this is going to be DANGEROUS. In the climate of approved imbibing, or rather restricted consumption to admit my husband tends to avoid anything ‘green’. The Guinness being black is in with a chance, but not ‘mild’ but so full bodied it will float a spoon. He is nearly ninety so there you go, all you vegan minceurs!

                  1. Hmm. Good review, and liked the ‘meta-review’ approach, i.e. the review that looks at itself reviewing. I think it’s appropriate to point out that Dawkins is not always about science. I like Mary Midgley’s thinking on the subject. And while we are deluded, we are also diluted – it’s hard for the common reader to keep pace with the specialists. I like Buckminster Fuller’s discussion of mind/brain in his Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth: http://designsciencelab.com/resources/OperatingManual_BF.pdf
