...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)


make like a bee... (or a chipmunk)

In these dwindling days of summer,
this is the time to make like a bee.
Crawl all over summer.
Rub your face in it.
Revel and roll around in it.
Gather every last sweet drop.
Don't let any bit of nectar,
any ray of sun,
 go to waste.

Make like a chipmunk
and fill your cheeks with summer.
Stuff what's left of it
deep into the furrows
of memory.
When you sit
under the hungry winter moon,
you will have
honey and seed
With one small nibble,
you will feel freedom
on the tip of your tongue
and the sun
glowing softly
in your belly.
