Poly-Nation

 





Poly-Nation



Summer sneaks in
and creepy-crawly, multi-winged,
many-legged creatures abound --  
an underappreciated army --
daily risking life and limb.  This
frantically pullulating poly-nation
is busily flitting, flying, creeping
out and about, steeping in stamens,
pollinating pistils, participating
in a feeding, fertilizing frenzy.

 
And (I ask you)...


 
Where would
(how could)
we humans
ever be(e,
bat, bird,   
beetle, butter-
fly...)

without them?

Last week was National Pollinator Week 2014.
(Yes, I'm running late... as always.)


Here’s a link to another poem on a similar topic: All Gone
