Bees Knees - Prompt 1- Change

Today I was reading Cheryl's blog and she was takling about her bees coming out. It seemed so early to me what with sleet slapping my window as I read about the bee in her Cherry Blossoms. Then I went over to One Single Impression and started reading all the wonderful poetry people are posting as the first Prompt has been posted since Sunday. Well, I must say I am not a poet but the combination of reading about Cheryl's bees and all the Haiku flying around One Single Impression I couldn't resist a go at it. The above is what came out. I will write them out in case you can't read it on the painting. Obviously not a true Haiku but Haiku-like.



Bee knees gather
powdery golden nectar
honey flows



Sipping spring tonic
bees stagger
in Cherry Blossom Cups

They are such nice images, so summery of bees and honey - really lovely thoughts.

Dear Lisa,
This painting is lovely and your poem is delightful!
You have talent in so many areas.
Stay safe and warm.
I saw the storm system coming your way. Very cold at my house.
I am dreaming of bees!

Wow - great painting & poem! I've seen bees in March, but I'm not sure I will this year.

Frances, said...

A woman of many talents, you are! We have seen bees on the warmer days in between cold spells. Where do they go when it is cold? But they are out in the hellebores, crocus, daffs, quince, and mahonia, so there is pollen for them. Thanks for sharing your poem and art.

This made me feel just a little more hopeful for spring. We've had sleet, snow and ice all day. That second one is wonderful. Thank you for sharing your talents.

kate said...

That is a lovely watercolour - I like the bees! Your poem was a perfect accompaniment.

Robin's Nesting Place said...

Lisa, that is so beautiful. I'm sure it made you feel wonderful to focus on doing something creative and beautiful, instead of pining away for spring, (trying to make myself learn a lesson here).

mon@rch said...

This is very stunning and wonderful to share this with everyone!

Andrée said...

LOVE THEM! That is exactly what happens to bees, too! Your artwork is stunning. The poems are bright and cheery just like spring shall be! (It will. Maybe after this ice and sleet tonite. Oops, no, more snow this weekend! LOL)


My "Change" is here. Thank you!
