Give and Take

Every single flower in bloom
Every year has need
For subtle kiss of honey bee
To carry on its seed

The slightest brush against its parts
A soft and delicate touch
To carry forth life-giving dust
And propagate as such

All fragile garden blooms depend
On bee's dispersing power
While honey bee in truth depends
On nectar from the flower

Elizabeth Santos

Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Great poem, Elizabeth! Teaches a little about nature...how some things are interdependent, like bees and flowers.

Very good work!

This is beautiful Liz.  I love the circle of life.

We have a plant that blooms in spring
it's called a Dead Horse Lily,
it has a smell like you know what
and is propagated by flies--

Welcome to the Pub! What'll you have? How about a nice cool glass of lemonade (I don't drink!)... come in anytime!  Expecially if you bring poetry like this with you.

You painted this picture with charm Liz.....
A delicately sweet piece that speaks volumes.....

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

It reminded me of life, of course.  Bees take from the flower, and in turn so does the flower from the bees.  A cycle of life.

Liz, as ever I stand in awe of your poetry. This is beautiful, like all of your poems. I love it! I think I'll order another drink from the bar and settle down and look for some others!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie
