Written for: Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads: Which Bee?
For today’s Weekend Mini-Challenge, I invite you to share a bit of bee poetry… specifically, we will write poems that explore a moment in the life of one of the three bees flying in the stanza quoted above. And because 3 is such a lovely number, let’s craft our poems in exactly three stanzas.
To be successful,
One has to be one of three bees:
The queen bee,
The hardest working bee,
Or the bee that does not fit in.
One success is inherited,
And the next one is earned.
While the last one is
And happens on its own
~ “The Three Bees”, by Suzy Kassem
Started out a worker bee
but my line of work,
did not make me happy.
Buzz was, she’s a dreamer,
never sure of what she wants–black bee
of the family, no overachiever.
Never too late to feel the sting
of clarity. I wanted to be
a writer. And honey, now I sing!
