Bechbretha

A bee poem for the 30DaysWild challenge. Also posted to @TopTweetTuesday.

Bechbretha

Bee
bumbled and brass-banded
buzz-bombasting the borders
humming humble bee hymns
to the honeysuckle
hollyhocking the sun

fuzzed fighter
pollinator
bee-bandit zorro of the zinnias

I have searched
with Aengus and Fintan
for that bee-loud glade of yours
where I might live

but some truths are only dreams
and Brigid’s honey
has a taste of the otherworld.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
