A bee buzzed by a flower one day,
A sunny afternoon in the month of May.
The flower winked once to catch his eye,
So the bee circled round in the cloudless sky.
He thought how friendly is this flowers’ tone,
As he buzzed back by with a wink of his own.
She couldn’t contain her blossoming smile,
As he did loop-d-loops in the sky for awhile.
Then suddenly he flew in to say ‘hi,’
But once so close, his ‘hi’ became a sigh.
So she leaned forward and planted a kiss,
Sealing their love with pollinated bliss.
The birds in the trees sang out with great cheer
As now they knew glorious Spring was really here.

Charming story. Have to echo the others-“pollinated bliss” is so wonderful!

How unique and creative! I love the winking between the flower and the bee. Quite a courtship! Andy your poppy photo is fascinating.
I took the poppy photo a few years ago. It was growing in a pot on my parents patio. I love it too.
A good flirtation, with some lovely images!
You may find, as I have, that often it pays to have the last two lines scan exactly. They seem to give more impact that way, particularly if the rest has been fairly free.
Good idea. Thanks.
Delightful poem and photos Gretchen. :0)
