Atop a daisy’s crown

Of petaled

White

A bee hovers

Set to hold

The pollen sought

Like precious

Gold.

In the prickliest places

Where the sun blazes hot

And the rain rarely stops

Lays a possible promise

For nectar

And hope.

Bees’ Needs

bees1

Little guy, age four, talking about flowers.
He asks: “Why do bees like flowers?”
I say: “Why do you think?”
He answers, curling intonation into a question mark: “Because they give them honey?”
I turn my own reply into a query in return: “Well, the bees make the honey, but they need something from the flowers to make it. What do you think they need from the flowers?”
Him: “The recipe?”
