Bees' Knees

pollen
bright yellow
on the knees of the bees

the secret
powering
flower to fruit

golden harvest

the quiet
humming
at the heart

of our world


for Read Write Poem

Co-incidentally, Melissa, Poet with a Day Job had a poem about bees (and two others) published recently in this Joy and Ride, why not pop over and read them here, you'll be glad you did!

More Bees Knees here and here.

I love "the quiet humming at the heart of our world"
It worries me to think the bees might be disappearing

This is so gentle like the bees are humming their praise as they work in the fields.

This is sweet. Although I am allergic to those wonderful buzzing critters, I do so love the idea you have laid here.

i like how this softly and gently builds--from the very very small specks of pollen on the very small bees knees to harvest to heart to world...
