A Bee Reflects - Poem by jim hogg

Buttercup,
I am the fluxing
structure that connects.
You and I are a universe,
a dancing couplet bound
in the flowering flow
of our singularity,
of incipient spark
and vanishing flame.

Buttercup,
I fed the leopard
through the veins of time,
contriving sequences:
the hard poetry of hunger,
and the blooming of cell
to petals and tragic wings,
to the harmony of ash.

Buttercup,
we are flickering,
though a long darkness,
through our lonely selves.
We are fragile code;
we are the sparkling stars
of time devouring comeliness,
we are the fleeting seeds of
all that we are.
