‘Bumble Bee’

‘Bumble Bee’

A Poem by Rose Petal🌹
"

Only one sting for me 🌹

"
‘Bumble Bee’

Oh-
How do I
Express
My love for
Thee-

Compare it
To that
Of a bumble bee-

With every buzz
Of being so
Free -
It comes pure
And virgin
From thee
To me-

Royal and rich
Each feeler
Does twitch-
Urgency
To choose
And fuse
With only one-

The love
It penetrates
Deeper at each
Rising
Of the sun-

A new life
Begun-

You carry it
So soft and
Knowing-
Stealing nectar
That’s
Overflowing

Fine hairs it
Holds the golden
Treasure-
Binding us
Together
Forever-

When love unites
And sting
Is
Stung-
You give your
Love for
Eternity-

The sting
Repeats -
No barb
To keep your
Love
Away from
Me-

Oh beauty of
The bumble bee

That brought
The love
From you
To me.

Excellent job of weaving many aspects of the bumblebee into visions of how a love situation progresses, making for a strong relatable extended metaphor. I love the way your language is light & delicate, similar to the way a bee might bumble along floating from flower to flower. Also, there's that understated threat of being stung that hangs in the air like some dangerous omen (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Reminds me of the concept in "Fame is a Bee" by Emily Dickinson. Sweetly romantic and so filled with love. I liked it. Lydi**
