Jardin D'Amalfi

Lemons blaze, hotter than the white heat on the green grass.
Sleepy, wafts of tangerine and juicy neroli, roll by.
It's time for a walk in the sunny garden.
Dreaming in the daze of warmth,
yellow striped butterflies prance with audacity.
Bold; they know they are marked as "dangerous".

Sweet musk lures the bees into
their busy trance of love.
Wings gently whirring,
they are drawn to the golden nectar.
A sassy dance,
a dusting of precious powder,
​and the tender hovering begins again.
