Do You Talk To The Bees?

 

 

Do you talk to the bees?  Well I do.  I wish them a good morning, with the sun’s first rays.  And as I do,  I give a wide berth to these buzzing teenagers, slow to wake.  They can be ornery, you see.  And if aroused, you might feel the sting of their wrath if they are still trying to sleep on their flowery beds.  They require a soft voice, and gentle touch.  Needing time to stretch their wings and get their bearings, they drink in the moment.  They linger over their first sip of nectar or sniff of silky pollen passion.  But once tasted, they move from plant to plant leaving their mark.  Letting all know, “I have been here”.

 

 

Catching the first light

Dancing through the morning scents

Waking to my day

I love to go into my garden and start the day by watching the bees sleeping on flowers.  And I talk with them as they are just beginning to wake.  Thanking them for being part of my garden sanctuary, and pollinating the flowers bringing us abundance.  They remind me to savor the beginning of the day, and live in the moment.

 

The pictures here are of those spring bees that wake early in the garden season, and do their spring dance bringing me indescribable joy.  This haibun poem is in honor of these precious bees, who are under assault from chemical warfare.

Poetry Sunday-Limitless

DSCN1924

 

 Limitless

 

 

I am alive, free

on the wing of a bird flying high.

Their song lifts me

as it breaks against the early light,

bouncing through newly formed leaves.

 

 

I ride it, with the wind

blowing the clouds,

swirling over water seeing a face I did not know.

Feeling a soul lighter dancing on the ripples,

a giggle bubbles up and fills my heart.

 

 

The day is limitless

and endless to explore,

each not repeating only this one-

this day, this adventure.

This moment is enough!

This poem was written in early May last year, and updated a bit this year.  As we enter May, I like to celebrate the whole month.  Why, you ask?  Well May is my birth month (end of May the birthday), and with it also being a fabulous spring month with flowers everywhere and warmer weather, what’s not to celebrate.
