Sweetness of Nature

My haibun in response to Carpe Diem Special #207 Sara McNulty’s third “taste of nature”

The trellis is already straining under a mass of tangled honeysuckle bines, dotted with pink buds and one or two early flowers. This particular plant blooms twice: once in spring and again in the summer. It grows beside a mature bay tree, with yellow blossoms of its own, and the sweetness of the honeysuckle mingles with the woody aroma of the bay tree. The garden is tranquil with the humming of bees luxuriating in pollen and, later in the year, the songs of bullfinches and thrushes that come to eat the berries.
