Bees

Strumming air enriching vision, full on pollen heading back; Bees antenna are unerring always on their sky-way track, World within a world their workplace, the link with every living plant A hive alive was placed in Eden, I never saw; but that's true I grant' Oxygen flows around the world, everything part or not at all..! In the scheme of daily life; the Honey bee is there on call. In pursuit of power & money, man reaps fields right to the edge Instead of leaving a little spare, for the poor; alien or orphan alive in dread Mans power to miss-use is fearful, never letting 'well alone.' Without realising, we are not the (be-all) mankind is but a useless drone.

deep and mortifying. It's reality most of us ignore. Doubly so for government. Lots of things have been done in the name of countries that just make me sad for what humanity -is- capable of, while ignoring the good that humanity -could- be capable of.

Dear Joe, man is surely interfering with the natural order of things. I hear honey bees are disappearing and countless species vanish from the Earth each year. Sometimes I feel it would have been better to live in the horse-and-buggy days. Thank you for visiting my page. This poem is a favorite for me. It has a message everyone needs to hear! Love, Carolyn

things trundle along Jack, I hope for better days which I suppose we all do, for instance it seems all the 'road maps' I have seen leaders touting were draughted on a different planet..Or is it we are falling into becoming a different planet.?

I like your perspective on bees. We need to open our eyes. It might hurt a little when stung, but we need them... Linda
