Living Vivid

The orange flowers attract bumble bees
Yellow and black bees stung my red knees
Dance round flailing and wailing  crimson legs
Devilish dimples arose;  scratch pegs
Several amber ants stung white toes

    Love it! I'm a bizarre individual who doesn't feel it when bees or wasps sting, at least not at first. After ending up with a calcium lump from one I wonder whether I'd be better off with the initial pain.

I was fond of going to the garden to pick some flowers or catch dragonflies and I got stung by a bumble bee, lol. I've enjoyed reading your work tonight. Thank you so much for sharing it. More power and graces always!!! love and hugs:) Leonora

    Living in the country, I'm always on the lookout for those nasty little creatures! My son once was stung by a bee on the lip and his face became unrecognizable! Great read... hugs, Jack

    Funny and painful at the same time. I hate those fire ants. Should do well in the contest.
