Answers Found in Sweet Water


across the gravel path
on sheltered stones
where water drips
from a leaky spigot
I walk past
buzzing bees
seeking moisture
on sunny days
stepping gingerly
past the question,
is water wasted
if it becomes honey?

I do not know,
though later another
winged creature
calls out an answer
down the road
I stop and
stepping out
of my car
I am greeted
by the cry of
some unseen
