Hibiscus blossom,
Trembling in white morning light
Ah, hah! Big bee! Ouch!


  1. i love the switch up in this. it starts out so eloquent and then yields to a simple and universally understood language. from the romanticized to the real.

  2. And right about now you thank your lucky stars that your genetics did not curse you with a terrible bee allergy.......

  3. Nice...I did not see many this year, something a friend pointed out back in July...I told him to write a poem, and he did!

  4. We rarely see big bees here in West Texas…but i know they're around! Likee!!

  5. We have big bees in our flowers, too. My cat likes to watch them buzz around but is smart enough to leave them alone. I have no fear of bees -unless they swarm. They are welcome to my flowers.
