dVerse Haibun for August

This photo is mine, published on Unsplash

Against August heat that’s pinpricked into the brick wall, and wings warmed awake and brittle in the sun, bees work within the scent of lilac and lavender as the long days slide sideways.

Last scents of summer
A sharp edged breath in the trees
Last bluing of sky

      1. I think it was on Sky, but I can’t find it now. there is one on BBC 4 iplayer called What’s killing our bees with Bill Turnbull. Not the one I meant, but still interesting.🙂
