A Drone No More

Beyond the safety of the trees
In heaven’s realm of azure seas
Relying on the lifting breeze
Defying earth’s unwelcome hold
Serenely soaring as they please.

A feathered freedom calls to me
Neath humbling burdens of a bee
Despite the heart of one who’s free

Before I’m crushed beneath the strain
Escape, I must, this droning bane
Emerging bravely from my hive
Swept up, my flight I will obtain.

(For the Birds and the Bees contest)

I wrote this while trapped in the car pick up lane today, where I felt a bit too much like a 
drone bee!
