Queen of the Night

On my walk: Mesa, AZ

Queen of the Night cactus blooms 
under early morning half-gone moon

Zealous honeybees at dawn wander 
In tender- throated petal valleys
Drinking virgin dew-drenched nectar 
Gathering golden pollen powder
Before brutal August sun destroys
Palest snow-white fragile flowers
