All Those Chairs In The Field

Rapturous orchestral maneuvers
performed by bees and butterflies.
One to each symphonic chair.

They sit upon these colorful structures,
measuring each refrain,
with the beating of wings.

I lie at the edge,
enchanted by this euphoric ensemble
that plays out the course of life
while perched upon
nature’s own soft seats.
