Spring Forward

Spring Forward

imagine a bee,
      and if you
did it right
   you might 
   imagine a
      buzzing 
rapid flight

   into pink
      flowers, 
(advertising
   food, and
   nectar)
as you crawl
   about the
   blossoms...

plants have
   different
agendas,
   but don't
understand

      why bees
   are needed
(it's nothing
we have planned)

   we're just
bystanders
      in the 
flower game.

      though 
   it's so
beautiful,
it's really 
not the same...

    I shall call the flower PRETTY, a ruffled angel.

    I get it and I’m not here to disturb the natural order of things, most times it’s fascinating to observe but there are times when certain bees show questionable traits then I’m also curiously repelled….lol

    The soft, yet bold bystander becomes even more attractive to observe even though the heart bleeds.

      Thanks Abby! In our world, the y do look angelic, don’t they?

      Bees in Canada are very docile and rarely sting unless greatly provoked.

      While photographing a plum tree, I had a bee hop off the flower I was shooting, walk up my lens and over my fingers, after which, she flew away.

      At first, I considered slapping her. By then she was walking on my fingers. Then, my mood turned to wonder.

      And finally, as she flew away, I realised I was feeling that she was a sweet little live thing, and that I was very, very privileged to have met her.

      (Worker bees, which she was are female.)

        A tremor should shake everybody’s history. History is limited and falsified. Working people are not represented in the official histories of hte area I live in. The same will be true for your area.

      Thank you d.a.! It is a peony, from one of our gardens. This garden has about 40 of them. Now that summer is here, we have different flowers.

      I will be out there to photograph current flowers tomorrow probably. (Too hot today already.)
