Hunting the Honey Bee

Words and Photo Copyright Debbie Berk 2017

 

Lost in love
and the brightly
colored darkness
of it all
bare and barely
aware
of the danger
I surrender
my softly bruised
flesh to the
beautiful
brutally of an
intoxicating touch
sweet as death
and my echoed breath
caught in the swelling
silence
of a passing wind worn
like the scar of the
heart’s deepest storms
that stings like the kiss
of a thousand rogue bees
cold upon the ghost
of a fevered,
wanting
skin

*This tree is in my front yard. And no,
I have no intentions of disturbing the bees.
