A moment of beautiful – crocuses in bloom!

the place: our front lawn by the driveway

the time: April 27, 2017

the beautiful: three plantings of purple crocus

~
A couple of days ago, as I left the driveway, I looked back and saw my blooming crocuses … purple and dark-purple-veined … shining in the sun.
~
The sight reminds me to always plan for the future. I planted these a few years ago, thinking, one day these will give me and others lots of joy. Today was the pay-out!

Flight paths

~

Bees navigate airways,

scan for nectar, flowers

in April bloom.

Guidance olfactory and sight –

ultraviolet, blue and green –

landing platforms,

runways invisible

(to human eyes)

lead to nectar.

Workers gather

and leave

for the hive

to waggle stories

to their kin.
