Creating a buzz

#Beeinthecity #Manchester #Buzz

A poem in honour of those colourful bees currently nesting in my city

The hive will be in Gtr Manchester till 23rd September – it’s well worth a visit.

(for those who haven’t read my #beeinthecity posts – they’re artworks!)

Banks-B , #Beeinthecity on Manchester’s Market Street

The hive arrived
Home for some bees
With artistic flair

Swarming around
City streets, with a
Hint of colour

Covering the sights
Of the county
North to south

Bringing smiles
From Salford’s quayside
To Manchester’s airport

The bees have landed

There’s been a swarm of colour land on my home city

Hard working and landing on the landmarks around the place

Bringing a buzz to the neighbourhood!

The bees will bee (deliberate typo) in the surrounding area till the end of august

Greater Manchester – If there’s any you would like me to photograph – let me know

In the meantime – I’ve found some archive photography from 13 YEARS AGO!
