Happy, Happy First of May
Outdoor F***ing Starts Today

Today is May Day, Beltane, the first of May...whatever fits your fancy. Here in the northern hemisphere, the Earth is ripe and exploding with rejuvenation. The plant kingdom is sprouting...pushing its green succulence out of the warming ground. Leaves reaching up...drinking, greedily, the rain. Absorbing, selfishly, the sunlight. Bees and birds are doin' it. We'll, I think the bees are, they're more private with their loving ways. But the birds...ah, I know they are in full flush.

My massage room is in the second floor dormer that juts out into the trees. To me, it feels like a luxurious, cushy tree house. I can hear the pigeons on the roof right outside my windows while I work. All day long, I listen to their throatier-than-usual "Coo, coo, coo." Followed by little, scratchy, birdie footsteps across the shingles. Lots of boisterous wing flapping followed by more cooing.

I watch as a female slowly, but pointedly, strolls past a male. Stopping, just long enough and close enough, for him to catch the scent of her female juiciness. Then she nonchalantly turns, tail feathers in his face, and walks away from him, over the peak of the roof line, out of sight. For a moment he blinks, blinks, blinks. Bewildered. Then, purposely, he struts after her. Obviously catching her, they give air to a velvety, rich, duet of inner and afterglow coos. Pigeon purrs.

I feel voyeuristic, almost a little embarrassed, to be in such close proximity to their love fest. Like I'm the one held captive in my lofty, glass-windowed cage watching life as it goes on beyond my confines.

Happy, happy first of May, my friends.

May we all be so lucky in love today.

Nobody can be indifferent to the first of May. It has been celebrated since ancient times with spring festivals, and since 1880 it has become in many countries "the wiorker's day" , a holiday celebrated with parades and socal/political speeches.
Your post, Ronda is a lovely tribute to the first of May.

Elisabeth said...

Happy first day in May, enjoy your spring rituals. We are just getting used to days that grow dark early.

Mrsupole said...

Happy May Day to you too. But you really should give up your days of voyeurism and let the pidgeons have some privacy. LOL

Just kidding they probably could care less who sees anything. Very few animals mate in private and I always am surprised by the ones that take one mate forever. It is sad when you see their mate get killed and then the sorrow it brings to the one left alive, sometimes to the point that the other one dies very soon after losing their mate.

I hope that May brings many great and wonderful days for all of us.

God bless.

Oh, I just love that your room juts out and into the branches of trees.

And what a great title to your post! Of course, as I read on I see that you do have a front row window seat to all the love fest happening outside.

Weather is so fickle. Two days ago it was so cold in DC that I could smell the wood burning fireplaces doing their job as I walked through the neighborhood.

Today, on the first day of May, it will reach 90 degrees!

TechnoBabe said...

You speak of May first with joy and sensuality, a wonderful mix. Indeed, a wonderful wish to all. Thanks.

Brian Miller said...

otin said...

joanny said...

Enjoy this day -- it promises to be the best --- sounds like someone has 'spring fever' oh so sweet I'm with you on this one. I woke up bursting with joy.


Jai Joshi said...

It doesn't matter what species we are, does it? We're all the same.

Happy Beltane!


Kate Hanley said...

Wonderful post. It certainly put me in a good mood!

Baino said...

Haha . . we have little ring necked doves that play the same dance! It's a lot of work for a very short lived reward I think!

Megan said...

Oh, this was great. What a flirt that lady pigeon is.

Fires here tonight - on grills! Beautiful day today!

Reya Mellicker said...

Yum!! Juiciness!!

We had a blogger maypole gathering a couple of years ago. Lettuce was there. It was such a blast!!

Would LOVE to get on your table in your treehouse. Oh yeah!

Ronda Laveen said...

Jitu: Happy May Day to you too! Thanks for the link to your city's celebration. I would love to check it out.

Jinksy: With you, one never knows:-)

ED: Spoil least on perving!

DUTA: Yes, Beltane is a very old and beautiful celebration in nearly all cultures. Happy day to you.

Elisabeth: I will enjoy and I'm sorry about your days getting shorter. I think we are stealing them.

Sherry: Those pigeons were absolutely oblivious to my observation. They had more urgent thinks on their mind.

Marisa: I love my room. It really does feel like a tree house. Our weather has been fickle too. Huge storms the beginning of the week, and we will be at least in the high 80s this weekend.

TechnoBabe: it is a sensual abandoned time of year. You enjoy too:-)

Brian: Oh, that is so funny. He caught the 2fer butterfly. Besides having him wash his hands, what did you tell your son?

Otin: You are lucky in love with one Miss Blueviolet!

Ronda Laveen said...

Joanny: Yes, sweet, sweet spring fever is what I have. Happy, happy first of May!

Jai: Yes, we are all the same and all one:-) A blessed Beltane to you dear lady. Yours should be eventful if your are still in your Cleavage Day mode!

Kate: Thank you and back atcha!

Baino: Oh, you are so right they work so hard for those few moments (or seconds) of bliss. But then, don't we all?

Megan: Enjoy your Beltane fires tonight. Burgers or steaks? I'll have to wait until tomorrow for my fires...had to work late tonight.

Reya: I'll bet the Blogger May pole dance was a blast! My treehouse table is always dressed and ready for your arrival, me lady!

Dave King said...

And I'll join Jinksy round the Maypole.

Harnett-Hargrove said...

Ronda Laveen said...

Dave: Shall I watch or no?

Jayne: It IS! I love it!
