Flock of Meteorites




Michelle, at Poefusion Friday 5, offers these words for prompt.

pheromones
earmarked
sedulous
apiculate
blisters

And, once again, my dictionary was a necessary reference. I can't wait to read what the others wrote - you, too, can check them out (or play) by following the link.




**

meteorites of birds
release white shadows
ahead of the sinking sun

earmarked as summer's
sedulous clean-up flock
these flashing birds ferret

bugs and bees drying
like amber tinted blisters
on the wooden deck

apiculate beaks emit
pheromones to keep
their cluster in complicity

when, after a feeding frenzy
of fermented grapes, they
whirl to undress my pear tree

What beautiful lines you wrote. I love the use of bugs and bees drying like amber tinted blisters and the ending of how the birds undress your pear tree. Beautiful. Have a nice day.

Dear Sue,
Clapping,laughing and loving each word! I watched the birds and the bugs as I read. I love the pictures you paint in my mind with your words.
Thanks!
