Honeycomb 2

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

Silent ballad of pollen park

Cant say a word

theyre rejoicing on the greens

as blossoms cover everywhere

round tree roots and inbetween

and in the warmth the flowers sway

playing in the breeze

floating around, without a sound

moving pollen with the bees

grabbing the poor sneezing soul

with hay fever by the throat

as pollen collects en masse like an army

around his collar and coat

and while he sits on the park bench

hed love to go and play

wi others on the large pitch

but pollens in his way

Bumble

Behold – the industrious bumble bee

Until you see him – he just goes about his daily business

Manoeuvring between the flowers, collecting pollen for the hive

Busy little insect is he, creating honey in his hive

Like his brothers and sisters,

Expecting to find rich pickings around the flowers
