Buckwheat Flowers Blooming

The autumn sky is clean and air is crisp. Looking upward
In a bay of overwhelming terraces
Butterflies are one after another, buckwheat flowers flourishing
And swarms of bees humming among the flowers

Bees and butterflies make the sea of flowers

Nature gives it the endless fragrance

When I read your poem, there's a picture that buckwheat flowers was blooming. Vivid memories came flooding back that my mum told me when she was young, she had a really hard time living in Shaanxi province.At that time, the best food was buckwheat.I'm really appreciated we live a better life now. really nice poem, best wishes.

Hooray for buckwheat- it is a good, wholesome food crop! When I travelled to Xichang, Sichuan in August I enjoyed buckwheat muffins. You are lucky to have seen and smelled its flowers. I only enjoy it as food, but I never saw it in flower.. .

My great poet and translator Denis Mair, It's really a good, wholesome food crop, but it grows in deep mountains. My hometown is located in big mountains. When i was a little girl i could enjoy its beautiful flowers in every fall and had its food in noodles. My mother can cook it so well. If one day we met in China i can cook it for you and it's tasted so well and also good for health.
