Wild Blue Indigo
Deep blue of indigo
Stalks reach skyward.
Magnets for the buzzing drone.
Bees drink their fill
With drunken smiles.
Sweet memories linger
With their departure.

I am continuing my spring poems with another wonderful native plant, Wild Blue Indigo or Baptisia australis. Their spikes of purple flowers rise tall each spring, drawing in dozens of pollinators for weeks on end. You can read more about this plant here, in my garden post.
The pictures here are of the Baptisia that grows in my garden each spring.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog, and with Gillena@verses for her Monday WRites meme, and Sanaa@A Dash of Sunny for her Prompt Nights every Friday. This week’s theme is “Nothing is more memorable than Scent”!
I leave you with a few additional words about deep blue indigo. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
