Bees in the Wilderness

How the bees
seem to love the wilderness
that is the bottom corner
of my garden.

How I am caught
between the need to tame,
let in the light and yet
not drive the bees away.

Somewhere between
I need to find a means
to satisfy me and still
please the bees.

In Shorts

Gardening in shorts
was perhaps
not the best idea.

Legs now scratched
by brambles
in the ‘wilderness’ corner!


A wilderness of summer green
provides a screen between
the house, the tamed garden
and the main road,
traffic heard but not seen.
