perfume


July 7 - July 11 Week 16/72


laden with a flush of heart-shaped leaves

pendulous branches of an American Linden

form a perfect amphitheater for

the steady droning hum of a highway

of bees busy overhead gathering

nectar from tiny blooms that have

enveloped me in a thick, heady scent

I love the idea of the amphitheater and the highway of bees! I am celebrating the survival of my transplanted horseradish, assured that I can make all the sauce I want it will will experience root trimming as a tickle. What's the fa,sol, la plant? something that looks like that (called clearweed, a form of nettle) is spreding all over the garden. The undersides of those leaves look like the color of our paths as the stuff seems almost to bubble up in lime.
