bee then a be hymn

can you imagine eating raw local honey
every morning and not developing a bee-consciousness
of the world? flower by flower, queen-tend,
wing-wind, sun-thought, love send,
hum-taught, deep in the heart
of things?

for surely, friend, a bitter thought is poison.

Oddly, I have been eating spoonfuls of raw honey this week. What you say about bitter thoughts is absolutely true.

So it is, of my own personal knowledge. Let us go on consuming this wonderful bee goo. Bee one with the be’s, I say.
