~~~ Life Is A Flower ~~~

Updated on June 12, 2013

~ Life Is A Flower ~


Life is a flower,

Her pollen makes honey;

Drunk bee flies along,

When it’s warm, and it’s sunny.

He’s buzzing, no money,

Striped jumper is funny,

Brushed stamen, dabs tummy,

Spreads love’s pollened honey;

His body, all crumby,

From alien mummy,

Hovers loads, of her yummy,

T’ward next petalled chummy.

      Adorable... :) I just don't know what I'll tell the 2 year old when she asks what drunk is? Really happy? She threw me for a loop the other day when she asked what same sex marriage was!

      I'm a fan as always....

      Hi healthmom!

      At two years' old, and she asked you that?

      The term 'drunk'(just to enhance the detail), was used in the context of the past participle, and past tense of the word 'drink',i.e. the bee has been sated from too much honey, making his chunky bearing, clumsy, as he flies, and not as a reference to inebriation by alcohol. :)

      Personally, I don't agree with same-sex marriage, as I believe it should be Adam & Eve, not Adam & Steve, but everyone has their own outlook, and opinions on this, and it's not my place to force my opinion on anyone, so I guess it's down to your own personal beliefs, and stance on this issue, which would be your own personal influence, as to how you raise your own children in regards to this issue.

      Thanks for dropping by HM, and you always leave food for thought when you visit.

      Have a lovely evening,

      R.Q.

      R.Q. I see, attribute that misunderstanding to multitasking reading. I see you must have passed 9th grade English class. Grammar was always my downfall... ;)

      She really did, but I proceeded to explain to her what same and different things were and she was satisfied. whew... but I know all those complicated conversations are on their way!

      as always, enjoy your afternoon across the pond.

      Awww, this is adorably sweet and cute! It's like Dr. Seuss, high on honey :D Cute little bee cartoon! The song and video are so perfectly fitting... I'll probably have it in my head the rest of the evening.

      Hey, no worries healthmom;your interpretation is the more popular meaning anyway, so no probs.And I don't envy you all of those colourful questions you are going to be asked for the foreseeable! : )

      I hope you manage to squeeze in some 'you' time, this evening, for a bit of peace and quiet.

      Best wishes,

      Thanks Cat; glad you liked it.I've never read any Dr. Seuss, although I'm quite familiar with his reputation, so I guess I've have to check out some of his old work when I get the time.And you're right;it is a catchy song.....

      Thanks a million,

      I've mentioned Dr. Seuss three times now... I'm just trying to be funny; but you're play on words in some of your poems spin me around and does remind me a bit of his unique ways.

      Don't mention it ;-)

      Cat

      I remember you talking about him before, and I think I remember remarking that he was mentioned in the R.E.M. song, ' The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite', but I always purposefully avoid other writer's works , and hardly ever read, as I want to try and stay original, for as long as is possible, although I will quote influences and sources that have lent inspiration, as is the fitting, and honourable thing to do, for which I've noticed many writers do not.

      Thanks again for your always chirpy, and uplifting comments.....now turn those sheets over, because I'm coming over......:))

      R.Q.

    • Cantuhearmescream profile image

      Cat 4 years ago from New York

      R.Q.

      Yes, you did reference R.E.M. before... but I don't think you mentioned the song; I just might have to go listen to it.

      No worries Romeo... you are certainly unique and Dr. Seuss was in a category of his own too; any imitation would be extremely recognizable.

      Oh... the sheets... okay :D

      Talking to you on here, and then immediately talking to you via personal e-mail, over, and over, back and forth, is sending me dizzy.Can we talk on PM?

      I'll avoid abbreviations in future, where possible.(Have you noticed that ' abbreviation ', is such a long word? lol.Such are the contradictions of language. :)

      R.Q.

    • Cantuhearmescream profile image

      Cat 4 years ago from New York

      Abbreviation... yes.. It hurt my brain just to read and write it :D .... and in my dumbfense... both Post Meridiem and Private Matters were within context... being that I felt I was on something of a roll, I through in Pre Menstrual... particularly as a shout out to your PMS hub?

      Romeos Quill 4 years ago from Lincolnshire, England

      Cat

      Lol! A very tenuous link, but O.K., have it your way - no point in putting out a match with a fire extinguisher.Did you mean 'Post Meridian'? :)))

      R.Q.

    • Cantuhearmescream profile image

      Cat 4 years ago from New York

      One means after midday and one means afternoon. Same with ante meridiem and ante meridian; one meaning before midday and the other meaning before noon... didn't think I needed to specify... would you like a Thesis?

    • Romeos Quill profile image
      Author

      Romeos Quill 4 years ago from Lincolnshire, England

      Yes, I'm more than familiar with both terms, my sweet, as I live just down the road from the sign displaying zero degrees longitude(and yes, it is an imaginary line), so a sarcastic dialectic from you would be surplus to requirements, but unless you are an horologist, you most likely wouldn't use the term 'meridiem', as the common usage, for general intents, and purposes, is 'Post Meridian'.

      Besides, the original point was 'Personal Message', so you seem to have strayed somewhat, from the original topic.

      R.Q.

    • Cantuhearmescream profile image

      Cat 4 years ago from New York

      What'd you call me? lol... I was only being playful, not sarcastic and yes... some people would say I'm a horologist :D

      Uh... hello? I am talking to the quill of Romeo who speaks in Shakespearean language am I not? You want to question my lack of modern day terminology? Well, I never! Good thing you said for 'general' intents and not 'all' intents... leaving room for me to veer away from the 'norm', the 'typical', the 'general'?

      Speaking of STRAYING... mr. cat boy... Personal Message? I wouldn't know?

      Love you! :D

      Saying 'Would you like a thesis?', to someone who not only fully understands the legacy of the 18th Century hero John Harrison, who saved thousands of lives for the British Royal Navy, by creating the first workable equipment to measure longitude(who also was born in Yorkshire, which is next door to me), and to someone who lives directly next to that imaginary line which sets G.M.T.(Greenwich Mean Time), is like asking if bears cr*p in the woods lol! So the tone in which it was said, was yes, sarcastic, but I'm a big boy, and can take it.And I'll take it that you're not being serious about being a horologist. :)

      R.Q.

    • Cantuhearmescream profile image

      Cat 4 years ago from New York

      Thank you for reiterating the meaning of G.M.T., as it has been quite a few years since 8th grade Science class. Well, in the past, when I don't have anything relevant to add to the debate... I will try to catch my opponent off guard by confusing them with irrelevant information... so in continuing with my debatable ways; you mustn't live too far from Big Ben... would you like to give me a history lesson on how Michael Jackson's mouse got his name?

      Romeos Quill 4 years ago from Lincolnshire, England

      Lol!

      I did say, in a previous comment, that I would avoid using abbreviations in future, where possible;that is why I typed the full definition.

      And I don't see how this information is irrelevant, as I am using it to qualify my understanding of the two different wordings, by using a real horologist, perhaps the most famous, by way of example, to substantiate aforesaid understanding.' Post Meridian', is the correct terminology used in illustrating this period of time(and I feel like I'm splitting hairs, and being pedantic by saying so), but there you have it. :)

      Now you're just jumping from the sublime, to the ridiculous.

      I couldn't help it... that was too funny! Yes, In the last week I think I've had a total of 8 hours sleep and me brain is running on fumes... I could go and assault Google, but even then... ah, what's the point... you're just smarter than me... and there you have it :D

      It's not about 'winning points' babe.If you have a good point, I'm going to listen, wherever the end result leads, and I'm not trying to beat you over the head with esoteric jargon, or blind you with science, so to speak, because it wouldn't be fair.

      You're probably not feeling too good then, with little sleep, so I understand. :)Don't miss out on your sleep....the sandman is waiting :))

      For telling the time in general, Cat, ' Post Meridiem ', that you used , is correct.

      Goodnight sweety.

      Romeos Quill 4 years ago from Lincolnshire, England

      This is the closest I can come to explaining it(splitting hairs......yawn!):-

      The original A.M. is from Latin " ante meridiem " (before noon), though we do now have in English the adjective " antemeridian " - "relating to the period before noon."

      Similarly P.M. " post meridiem " (after noon,) and postmeridian.
