About dryads

homely weather
the terpsichorean dryads 
bibbing the silken resin

none prophesy
ash altar - mine
blackbird's song at afflatus

charmed foliage
an enshrine – pines
possess the meekest dainties! 

dine - victual
mojo on mulberry 
having the  blatant   necklace

Difficult archaic words:
bibbing – drinking 
banquetry – feast
victual – eat

An enchanted moment from bee-like autumn

the last autumn - bee
just before epiphany
beehive fulfilled?
bee looking at fall
in the beehive – wings
and the timeless dreamed sparks
meek bees as heroes
queen bee in rumination
marvel of buzzing
an autumnal bee
sleeping or awakening - time?
beehive as temple
fall adoration
the bee flying towards star
meek weird tenderness
marvel of beehive
queen bee meets dear apiarist
in loneliness
can you dream of the
bee-like fulfilment in fall
full of moony moon
may the autumn be
the most tender flight of bees
to sweetness of morns!
