Springtime Buttons

Springtime Buttons

watching for inspiration
      we see the flowers

attracting pollinators
   like little honeybees
(they see differently)

   our eyes are not
      so fantastic
we see much less

   shades of blue
reveal more detail

than if there were
      more colours

hummingbirds visit
      sucking nectar

old-fashioned flowers
      ragged in a puddle
   of spring sunshine

when they die no sign 
   of their beauty is left

      and so it is with us
   what we have in life

   our bodies and beauty
our comforts and delights

   and all possessions
they are all left behind
