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
