Flower and the Bee (Part 2)

Processed with VSCO with a7 preset

sharing the second part of my duet with the bestie, Shubhodeep Roy. 🙂 i am the flower and he is the bee. the part 1 is here.

my bee, that kiss was sweeter than honey,
brimming with love, i’d choose it ceaselessly.
but after you let go, I saw the look in your eyes,
gazing at another pretty blue bathing in sunrise.

the wind remains warm, but I am freezing inside,
as you fly towards your next flower bride.
i have no choice but to let you go freely,
because I, however beautiful, will never be your only.

angry on me is my favorite flower,
she doesn’t know, how hungry i’m at this hour.
for survival, i might fly to another blue,
but for love, i will always come back to only you.

the queen bee was angry, for i brought only a little honey,
allow me to go to the flower brides, oh they are so many.
your nectar, though only a little, gives me life,
however you misunderstand me, you’ll be my only wife.

      1. Things are fine. I live about 50 miles from London now and don’t tend to go in there much. There is a lot of anger this time. People are getting fed up with politicians and their sound bites.

  4. So sorry, unexpected visitors last night have made me rather late in responding to your piece. Enjoyed this and look forward to seeing what you come up with next.

  5. It’s always fun to read a collaboration writing and aren’t they interesting to do? I enjoyed your love affair between the bees and their flowers. I hope it continues with all the bees of the world and that they make a healthy comeback, in spite of us.

  6. I love the parallels here Rosema. The bee and his favourite flower ‘his wife.’ I’m going back to read the first part now. Lovely and brilliant poetry as always. How has your book been doing?

      1. Aw, I’m sorry about that! I think the marketing is the hardest part. At least that’s what I’ve read and what Melinda told me .
