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.

Flower and the Bee (Part 1)

let me introduce you, my dear friends, to the amazing man i knew from Instagram. the epic photographer (go check his Instagram), a talented music producer and songwriter (go check his website), a budding amazing writer (yep. i am a fan and he is now on WordPress!), and my far away bestfriend, Shubhodeep Roy. 🙂 below is the lovely duet inspired by his photograph that we’re both delighted to share with you all. 😉

she was beautiful, a bright blue,
wearing a shiny coat of morning dew.
her sweet nectar was too much to resist,
so I dived into her and kissed.

the wind blew hard, we held on to each other,
she could have swayed and kicked me rather.
her delicate petals didn’t want to be free of me,
because i, however ugly, was her favorite bee.

he was the bubbly painted in yellow
buzzing loudly yet his inside is mellow.
his wings’ flaps are my kind of music,
as he nears i felt like i’m sea sick.

bathe in the warm morning rays, we kissed.
i hope my longing for him was unnoticed.
with him, i wish to have a time-stopping power,
for in warm dry or cold shower, i am his, flower.

Lionize me now.
There ain’t no vainglory here

Stand tall but know when

life’s a turning wheel.

Envy

He own things I lack.
She wore leather boots, I want.
Why I lack a lot?

He’s not more lucky.
I don’t need those leather boots.
I don’t covet things.

Sloth

Sun sets and rises,
I’m unmoved in unmade bed,
tomorrow, I’ll move.

Get up, get moving–
ignore the couch, your enemy–
turn off the tv.

Greed

Money stacks tower,
casting shadows that lengthen–
extend my power.

Will you be happy,
to sleep  in bed of millions,
locked up, all alone?

Gluttony

Calories unseen,

Counting calories–
Eat more lettuce not more cake.
Lock the cookies up!

Wind

Whispers soft and light,
scream signals storm’s strong might, yet
cradles flying kites.

Wind whips tornadoes,
hurls them across the grassland–
toss cars and houses.

Last ‘element’ tomorrow…

Water

Evolves ceaselessly,
frozen then flowing briskly,
can’t live without thee.

Water dashes rocks,
falling in a silver spray–
purity that flows.

Earth

Above sprouts green lawns,
beneath lies decaying bones,
births, buries life zones.

Cities rise and fall
Earth remains spinning through all
the lives led and lost.
