In Glory of the Birds and Bees

We have the Birds. . .
Living life to the fullest. Rising with the
dawn, eager and happy to seek out their
first juicy meal of the day, without delay.
For this meal gives them stamina to fly
and gather twigs to carefully construct
their nests . . . nests to welcome their
little fledglings in the splendor of spring.

Then we have the Bees. . .
Bees live in their own devout community,
ever busy and content to gather nectar
to be shared by their fellow roommates
without avarice or ego driven traits that 
plague the human spirit. We have much
to learn from the tiny bee, flying free.

The lesson we may learn from the birds
Is that contentment may be found in the
presence of Mother Nature as a divine gift
acknowledging a balance of gratefulness,
keeping within the bounds our eco system.

The lesson we may learn from the bees is
that each of us plays an important part in
insuring our growth in humanity by sharing
the fruits of our labor with each other in unity.

Sorry, Carol, I blew it and somehow missed your large
lettering of the word Acrostic. Not sure I will have time
to write another for your contest. --Connie

    Hi Connie :) -- what a wonderful way to talk about the birds and the bees! We sure could learn a lot form them-- funny how they animals seem to be able to have a better grasp of life than we do? Wonderful thought provoking write & even if you missed out on the acrostic part, still glad that you were inspired to write such a wise poem for it :) Thank you btw for all your inspiring comments on my poems, Connie :) You are such a dear-- hugs to you-- nikko :)

    Where do I start, shall I flatter you? Oh yes I shall. A writing with depth of talent and unique taste. You are what I call, hmm .. a genius, let me tell you this, and you know it, I speak no monkey business. You are an outstanding poet. Love, Sami.

    We could learn a lot about social interaction from the birds and the bees, Connie. They seem to have found the way to live "life to the fullest." This is a beautiful poem, Connie. Maybe Carol will give you a pass on the acrostic form. With something this well done, I think I would. If not, however, you may be able to rewrite these thoughts in acrostic. It wouldn't be too hard. Love, Carolyn
