Morning Thoughts – Honeybee Drone

Rose

“Perfectly Pink” – © chriscondello 2013 – Alley – Wilkinsburg, PA – I swear to God the insects are messing with me… I found this rose in an unmarked alley here in Wilkinsburg… Actually part of a bad ass alleyway rose garden…

Motionless morning… End of May…
Intense atmosphere… On a hot and muggy day…
I can feel the atmosphere rising…
Air comprising moisture and lightning…

All my senses are telling me it will rain…
Fuck the weather channel… My knees in pain…
And my back is out of whack…
Taking my observations slightly off track…

Coneflower bones and honeybee drones…
Fragrance of locust blossoms… Like honey and rain…
Compliment this ninety degree weather…
Fragrance of spring… Heat of summer…

Together…

The heat is unbearable… Visually oppressive…
Waving lines rise from the street… Deadly suggestive…
The plants bow… They are begging for rain…
An easy fix… Yet all the signs say abstain…

Rain is on the horizon… It is in the air…
Cumulus clouds rise in the heat…
Till they reach the stratosphere…
Anvil head forms in the ice-cold atmosphere…

Still a few hours away… But I promise… It will Rain…

    Today it did rain 🙂
    and all that you wrote,
    didn’t go invain 🙂
    thunder and lightning
    trees still sway

    City heat is intense! We have too few trees there and far too much concrete. It’s pipin hot in the tip of Michigan too today, but I am surrounded by trees, fields and rivers. Hang in there! Or bust out the hose…
