Hover with beating wings flower lover
Fleeting with iridescent light meeting
Reminiscent the wasp, feeding self-sufficient
Stops upon a wild rose buzz your hosp
Nose deep in dusted pollen your clothes
Fallen seraphim cast away foreign
Steam the rim of summer’s cream
Skim the sunshine of golden trim
Mine the sugary of floral wine
Fly the syrphid out of mystery.
Submitted as part of “National/Global Poetry Writing Month” (#NaPoWriMo #GloPoWriMo).
Today’s prompt: Day Twelve: “Yesterday, I challenged you to write a poem about a very large thing. Today, I’d like you to invert your inspiration, and write a poem about a very small thing. Whether it’s an atom, a button, a hummingbird’s egg, dollhouse furniture, or the mythical world’s smallest violin, I hope you enjoy your poetic adventures into the microscopic.”
