hexagons too narrow
for fingers but just right for bees
conjuring honey from pollen
tidy and tessellated
Kim M. Russell, 24th April 2020
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’.
