Planting for Bees and Butterflies

the air was here

before us

the water, the rock,

the unnamed insect

the wandering tribes

of earth and sky

every day I

bless the aster

bless the milkweed

bless the goldenrod

sing to the bees

the monarchs the

rising song of the birds

every day an elegy

a death song

the heart cries out for

love and loss

grief and joy

the birds flying through

the heart, rising.
