Bee Adventurous

Follow the patterns. Follow the flight.
Follow to where the others went,
where the flowers are known,
and no surprises lie.

But I – I fly on daydream wings,
to fields my fellows did not try,
to sip exotic nectars under bright blue skies.

And should misfortune meet their flight,
should their flowers fail to thrive,
I’ll share my fortune with them too,
and again seek delight
in the revelations I have yet to find.

  2. A solitary flier with a heart made of honey and gold. I love that she's ready to share her secret treasures... if she had to. ✨🌸🐝🌸✨

  7. You have made me think, what if no other bees followed that leader? I'm glad that your 'loner' be was willing to share.

  9. "I fly on daydream wings.." well, that is golden of course--but the poem also excels in conveying a social sense of caring, of connection that seems very beelike and genuine. I like it very much, Rommy.

    1. I figured part of the bee's intrinsic nature was to at least keep community in mind, even if she liked flying solo.

  17. To be brave enough to follow our own path, and charitable enough to share, what could be better? I enjoyed your bee's flight. I loved the video - it was amazing :-)

  18. I love the sense of joy and adventure this conveys - sometimes we must take our own flight paths.. hopefully it gives us something sweet to share with others
