Hive member. Natural drone


buzzing drowsily at eye level in the oven-like haze

of a summers day

somehow knowingly choosing particular flowers

that, more nectar promising

fragrantly stand out from

the multi-coloured floral crowd he hovers above.


He is making the very best, 

of, being ( no pun intended ) in the right place at the right time.

 This winged collector, this stripey fur jumper wearing Dumbledore

his hair-thin legs already much clung to

by the precious amber toned delicious honey to be ( no second pun intended )

nonchalantly flits here and there but at the ready to sting if disturbed


ever so gently alights

upon certain pollinating subscribers

one, taking, one giving, each able to persuade the other

to intimately comply with the task in hand.


That beautiful interaction, at the point of pleasing

the observer's eye's, is privileged permission given by nature

for their appreciations to luxuriate in.

Nice one Rose
