Someone should have
Told the sun worshipper to not go near that hive
Instead they went on a honey hunt – and met some angry bees
Note – they were whisked straight off to First aid –
“Got to tell you” – said the nurse – this is going to hurt…..

Behold – the industrious bumble bee
Until you see him – he just goes about his daily business
Manoeuvring between the flowers, collecting pollen for the hive
Busy little insect is he, creating honey in his hive
Like his brothers and sisters,
Expecting to find rich pickings around the flowers

A San-San poem – Origins rooted on the Greek Island of Crete
On holiday by a grecian water
I saw a flying insect having some tea
it flew for the pollen from flower to flower
occasionally passing a grecian sun or daughter
it was happy to pass through the flowers this bee
till it was time to head for home
where it spend a passing hour
away from the sun making honeycomb.
In response to the photo prompt challenge
This photograph was taken during the summer, and is of the purple / blue flowers that were growing in the garden planters in the front garden of the family home. They’re offset by the pink flowers in the background – and if you look very closely…a very special guest makes an appearance.
Photograph taken with Sony Cybershot and cleaned up round the edges in Serif Photoplus
No Photographer was harmed in the creation of the shot.
