They bloom in the order of seasons
Wisteria, Weeds, and Roses
Drawing all the small things
Bees, Lizards, and Sparrows
Spread the fields with fire and fruit
Wisteria are bees' vintage
weaving the woods' communion
Weeds are quick, thorough--
Mythic and common song
Rose leans close,
stroking the house, blocking the gate
If the question is Should you run?
A better one is
Sharing with Poets and Storytellers United and thanks to The Sunday Muse for the photo inspiration (above). As a side note, just as I'm becoming overwhelmed with the bad-but-nebulous-everything-is-wrong, Arthur steps in to remind me that there are those close at hand (puppies with nervous stomachs, for instance) who need my focus. It doesn't help, necessarily...but after cleaning up the floor and making sure he's okay (seriously, does anyone know how to settle border collie stomachs?), I'm at least confident that specific areas are sanitized. And that one minor emergency has passed. (Do foxes have nervous stomachs? They kind of levitate like collies.) I know we're all waiting for the world to return.
Additional side note: We don't have sheep. We have a tiny backyard in suburban Texas...so the closest we come are squirrels, stray cats, and the occasional large moth. The chihuahuas next door. (Arthur would love to start his own chihuahua circus. If I ever write a children's book...)
Hope this finds everyone well and sorted and safe.
