Honeycomb

Hexagonal in form – 
overall storage space for
nectar collected by the bee
each space brimming with
yellow sweet liquid gold
chances are
outside in the summer sun – you
might just see a prospector of this yummy stuff
buzzing around the nearest bright flower

Honeycomb Ii

Manchester, 11th august

 

#beeinthecity #manchester #hunnypot

 

six sided structure

created by worker bees

for the colony

 

sleeping in their nest

little bees dream of honey

from flowers next door

 

Travelling over air

homing pigeons cannot beat

worker bees radar

 

treasures collected

from inside the flower head

create a sweet thing

 

flavour from pollen

transferred to golden slices

by the hunnypot

A San-San poem – Origins rooted on the Greek Island of Crete

 

Honeybee.jpg

On holiday by a grecian water

I saw a flying insect having some tea

it flew for the pollen from flower to flower

occasionally passing a grecian sun or daughter

it was happy to pass through the flowers this bee

till it was time to head for home

where it spend a passing hour

away from the sun making honeycomb.
