Mexican Sunflower Monarch & 5 Pollinator Haiku

Mexican Sunflower Monarch

5 Pollinator Haiku

Hummingbird hovers
Penetrates till satisfied
Third party lover

Drone bees zig-zag home
Dodging thundershower flak
Honeyed queen dancing

Sultry sunflowers
Flame red and blossom yellow
Whores to garden bees

Bumblebee exposé —
So much to say to pansies
Can’t shut the buzz up

Silver pearls of dew
A dung beetle washes up;
Hates his shitty job
