the small suns of their hearts
we wait, impatiently now,
for helios to rise in our garden.
shasta daisy readies for her entrance
while sunflower pushes strong stalks heavenward.
in the meantime, bees buzz contentedly
about the thyme that has gone to flower
then flits over to chives abloom,
spindly legs and wings already heavy with pollen.
