Hear the Buzz

Second poem inspired by the abundance of Goldenrod and the bees that love it. Despite being stung at one point in my life, bees are some how calming and nurturing. Knowing which are the friendly bee and which ones to not annoy is helpful too. Enjoy the poem.

Hear the Buzz

Hear the Buzz

Subtly
in the quiet of wilderness
hear the buzz
not the flies
they are gone now
with the summer waning
and fall tipping his hat.

Hear the buzz
of the great body of bees
the pollen collectors
supping at the ample goldenrod
those yellow drooping feathers
atop Autumn’s hat.

Hear the buzz
of the great body of bees
yellow jackets
small Vespula
and paper wasps
scritching bits of wood
for their flaky pie crust nests.

Bees in all directions fly about their busy business
A Doppler effect buzz
like the mini trains they are
knowing they can
and will
propagate to continue the buzz
the buzz that lights up the quiet
that settles the soul
that blooms the earth.
