sun kissed wings, glistening bright
glimpses of movement within sight
honey bees flitting here, there
tiny beauties carrying pollen with skilled flair
bush to bush, flower to flower
working hard, hour by hour
busy they must be
pollination, a major key
purpose, transferring this golden essence
no life without the bees presence
pure honey, another miracle achieved
many gifts we receive
where do bees go, when day turns to twilight
a secret, a mystery of the night

With colony collapse a major problem, bees are becoming an endangered species. This is a lovely tribute. …
Dorothy, thank you. I believe most people don’t understand the importance of bees and other pollinating insects.
What a beautiful tribute to honey bees…I loved teaching my kindergarten class about bees and how hard they work. Your pictures are beautiful too!
Gay, after all these years I fondly remember the name and face of my kindergarten teacher. She played the piano for us! I bet your little students remember you! Thank you Gay.
Love your reflections! 🙂
Good Morning LuAnn. I am glad you like my attempts at poetry. Hope things are going well there.
