Tesselated

honeycomb

hexagons too narrow

for fingers but just right for bees

conjuring honey from pollen

tidy and tessellated

sticky-sweet

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads NaPoWriMo Day 24 Play it Again in April 2020: Wild Woman’s Natural Wonders

On Wednesday 24th April, 2019, Sherry inspired us with natural wonders. I love the image of a wax rubbing of tree prints that look like a human fingerprint to illustrate the inter-connectivity of everything, with patterns repeated in nature and in our bodies.

The challenge is to write poems about nature’s wonders, or how its breath-taking design makes us catch our breath in awe.

I’m merging this prompt with Kerry’s Skylover Wordlist, sourced from Dylan Thomas’s poetry collection Deaths and Entrances, from which the twenty-fourth word is ‘narrow’.
