diligent worker

bee shares fruits of his labor

don’t get too close


I’ve had some unusual experience as a cyclist. One was cycling thought a semi-truckload of bee hive boxes. I assure you not all the bees stay in the box. My wide-eyed friend and I rode fast to get clear.

What would you do if you were face to face with hundreds of bees?

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Beautiful haiku, Leslie. So true. Bees are hardworkers and are a lovely sight, but get too close and annoy them, they will turn on you in an instant. Such a cheery photo to go along with the poem 🙂


  2. I know bees do work hard for their living, I don’t know what I will do if I’m faced with a whole bunch of bees, I can’t even face one. 🙂


  3. When I first moved here 44 years ago there was a beekeeper up at the corner. The bees were great for the flower garden but I’m highly allergic so I really had to stay inside when they were around.


  4. While bees are needed and are responsible for much of the food on your plate, yes, it makes sense to not get too close to them 😀


  5. __Here, there are so many Cranberry bogs, and the bees aid the farmers. These pollen spreaders are far more defensive than aggressive, and just think of the honey; to be stingless, we try to… not cause them to beecome Confrontational. -C- _m

  6. I love your haiku, Leslie! Yes, let the bee focus on the task at hand. And, thank you for mentioning me! I am following you too and look forward to reading more! ☺️
