The bumblebee is like a sacred one
That would save the pollination’s world
They show you what needs to be done
The way they did to their pollinations
I feel like they are a saviour to our world
They allow for new life, for growth, for reborn beauty.
They do their duty for their colony and for the Earth.
Those hard-working magic-makers,
Spreading hope and potential for dahlias and rosemary–
They truly are divine keepers of the circle of life.
Sweet honey is a bee’s saviour to their taste
And the bumblebee’s sting protects their sanctuary
As well as shielding their clever and beautiful queen
She instructs them to their heaven’s work
For the sake of our life not alone their lives
Inspiration, too, is a bumblebee
Buzzing around one’s head–protecting its kingdom,
Taking flowery thoughts
And transforming them into fruit,
Giving way to seeds that will sprout anew.
This is the third poem written in collaboration with Ismael Mansoor from This Engrained Heart. His contributions are in italics and mine are in bold. Please do go visit his blog!
