Birds and Bees

Birds and Bees

A Chapter by .

"

I stood there still among the trees 
My breath the only sound 
As the birds and bees all gathered 
To touch upon sacred ground 

I listened as the blue bird 
Changed its solemn tune 
And the honey bees stirred sweetly 
Beneath the crescent moon 

And still I stood among the trees 
My breath the only sound 
Watching as a feathered prince 
Stepped forward to be crowned 

 "I am a bird, my Queen a bee" 
He spoke to all who gathered 
Declared the love within their hearts 
Was all that really mattered 

And with my breath the only sound 
I stood among the trees 
Wondering if this is what they mean 
When they talk of the birds and bees

So easily they have expressed their love and shared love with ease. Birds and Bees luck enough to hang around the trees. I like this read.

Thank you kindly my friend.
You sort of think this should be the birds and the bees. Certainly a whole lot nicer than the stalk flying through the air. Great write.

Thank you too Ana...
A wonderful nature poem, must be those Canadian sensibilities, hewers of wood and haulers of water and all.
One small thing...He spoke to all had gathered...maybe...He spoke to all who gathered. Other than that a great piece.

This is a really serene, peaceful sound. I know that moment, when you are out in nature. So quiet, but so ALIVE ... beautifully expressed here.
p.s. it's does not need an apostrophe 2nd stanza, 2nd line.:)
