Poetry and Pollinators 10/7/14

“The tears I feel today
I’ll wait to shed tomorrow.
Though I’ll not sleep this night
Nor find surcease from sorrow.
My eyes must keep their sight:
I dare not be tear-blinded.
I must be free to talk
Not choked with grief, clear-minded.
My mouth cannot betray
The anguish that I know.
Yes, I’ll keep my tears til later:
But my grief will never go.”
~ Anne McCaffery

October 7, 2013 sigTuesday, October 7, 2014 – Fall can be a melancholy time when you know the sunshine will be giving way to colder days.  I am seeing fewer and fewer pollinators and most of the ones I see are honeybees out gathering before the cold sets in.  Today I was lucky and saw one native bee and a flower fly.  The wasps are pretty needy now around the hummingbird feeders as their days grow close to an end.  Today is the seventh day of the month long poetry challenge and the prompt is “silence”.
