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

Honeycomb

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.

Man’s ability to miss the

Incredible detail of the world around them is legendary.

Nature can be seen all around us – even from

Underneath a glass tumbler.

Till you see it – you won’t appreciate what you see with your own

Eye, but when you do – you’ll tell everybody about the red spotted Ladybird on the Ledge

Butterfly

Butterfly

by Brian F Kirkham

 

Born from a tiny little egg

the caterpillar emerges

eating every leaf of green

it moves each every single leg

as it eats and growth it surges

till one day it hides away – to return with wings

it hides away unseen

and then the moment it breaks out – and its colour sings
