A Bee's Paradise

by Janet Leonard
Falling headfirst,
you daringly dive

into petals' velvety-soft
golden wheat fields;
your little life form
snuggles like a cuddling child.

You delightedly dip--
flower cup by flower cup
into your sweet, powdery world.

Carefully lifting weighted legs,
you select your next bloom.
Once more, headfirst you


Singing quietly, you share
a song of satisfied pollination,


really not worried about a thing,

as hurried humans pass by thinking
all you have on your mind is a sting.
