Buzzing Bumble Bee

Updated on September 19, 2011

Plump black and yellow bumble bee,

pollinating creature you are,

always on the move,

never an idle moment in your day,

your fuzzy body tickles flowers,

uncontrollable laughter,

it ignites your hum-like buzzing voice,

gently carries in still morning air,

drifting through the garden,

beauty touches you,

all along your way,

determinedly moving,

flower to flower,

giving and taking,

each stop you make the cat in the window,

sitting ever-so still,

invites you to play,

some dastardly game,

need I say you dare not partake,

watching you makes me wonder,

a favourite flower,

have you your frequent stops,

a clue perhaps,

the sprawling shaggy veronicas,

might be it,

at least today a wish,

offered to you and all other bumble bees,

may flowers sprout a lifetime,

and may summer last an eternity

    sorry Mark Psychedllic, I think I spelled that synchronism word wrong, must look that up, too late to edit.

    This poem captures the very essence of the garden, the bee, the flower and their perfect synchronicity.

    Beautiful. You took my mind with yours, together on the journey of this bumble bee as it goes from flower to flower. Great use of imagery. Well written.
