Selected variations for bees

Poetry

honey-dribbled
symmetry up-time;
of electric silhouettes
of selected variations

motion-uncaged
aviation sun-lit;
of swoop turns
of blown landings

orbit-driven
dance drum-toned;
of eclipsed gaps
of fuzzy signifiers

close-glided
thistle wing-twisted;
of flecked apparitions
of flower shortcuts

wind-lined
cusp song-stretched;
of flinch spindles
of southerly clusters

sun-leaped
beryl syrup-smacked;
of mottled pirouettes
of balmy straws

blossom-lined
gush fluid-hedged;
of specked upshots
of greenly ponds

light-sparsed
pollen cross-tossed;
of scented scores
of unclouded torpids

inner-concave
fiddle croak-lengthed;
of sudsy flashes
of pollen confetti

salt-laden
break day-sledged;
of oddly spells
of stitched dulses

ray-sparsed
topple leg-drawn;
of possible futures
of uncurled tendrils

waddle-wrapped
hour plague-green;
of mulched lichens
of quenched rockroses

wimble-wamble
droop up-side;
of bumbled wrigglers
of pegged dancers

gust-welded
guck foam-poised;
of glumly sage
of longing redemption

ruddy-rusted
nether sulk-spoiled;
of sullenly manners
of dourly offerings

fog-washed
spume fever-fizzed;
of forgotten corners
of lethal topsoils

necro-fabled
queenly veil-squalled;
of guttered leafness
of urchin leaden

heat-washed
hollow spin-lapped;
of quilted choruses
of perished weight

lute-bodied
flame pall-dressed;
of quiet burials
of spruced cataclysms

loss-pleated
mites rive-strudded;
of glumly rocks
of darkly forsythias
