Bee-ing – TB

20 Feb

Will this matter a year from now?
For now I am a honey bee
Hunted by hornets.
They try to murder my dreams
And deliver homilies of their own.
How doth the little busy bee
Continue living from hour to hour?
How long will she be free
To gather honey from every little flower?
Flowers are not as sweet as they once were
And seeds fall on hard ground.

    The flowers that sprout from the words of the poet sweetens the honey as it drips to the ground to soften giving way to the gardens of the mind. Great write.
