Beehive Mantra

Under Lisbon bridge

people sit in lotus position

while the sound

of a thousand bees

falls to their ear


Beehive Mantra

Algarve Sunset

South in Portugal

Mediterranean seascape sunset

lingers til dark


of the fishermen’s boats

dot the smooth waters

their nets bring in a catch

Sold to the market

in early morning

fresh eyes of many fish

glisten from their bed

of ice


dVerse prompt to use the word “set” in a quadrille
