Tiny Black Ants

I clipped a few Camellias, 
and placed them in
my kitchen window.  

While admiring their
exquisite beauty, 
I noticed
a stamen covered 
with tiny black ants. 

 What to do?  

I held the blooms
beneath the faucet 
and washed the ants down
the drain. 

The Camellias seemed 
pleased, possibly
thinking they had just 
experienced a nice 
spring rain.

Have a sweet ole' day!
