What I would bee
If I were a honey locust tree what would I see? I would see decades and seasons faster than wings on a bee. I’d make farmers and shepherds stop to smell me. I would temp children and kittens to climb up for a treat.
If I were a plum tree early in spring, I would bless the world with a fragrance that charms them to sing. My blossoms would herald the warm coming days with scent that no launderer has ever proclaimed.
If I were a lilac as old as the hills, I’d give blossoms abundant still enough for thousands of jars to fill. My fragrance would sift through windowsills. And my color would match sunsets and dresses with frills.
If you were a flower fragrant and free, what song would you sing, what color would you bee?.
