Enchantment …

 Buff-tailed bee on rosa rugosa

I peer into the newly-opened rose;
a secret heart exposed
to one ecstatic bee
thigh-deep in pollen ..

like a be-furred planet
the bee revolves around the corolla
reverberating sounds
vibrate among the petals ..

in the world of the bee
pulses of perfume suffuse the air,
a moment;
an enchantment;
and rosa rugosa artlessly ensnares …

Rosa rugosa opening

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
