If you Google “Solitary Breeze,” for Open Link Night

If you Google “solitary breeze”

Bees, that is. I meant bees;
the breeze is never lonely,
how it cuddles your ear,
whispers into it, something

about flowers, pollen,
the baskets on your legs,
you. You, who live in a
nest by yourself,

no need to make honey,
just nectar in your veins.
Sun shines through your
wings; you are the sun,

the only one,
the only song
you know.

 

For Open Link Night at dVerse Poets. Also, I got my contributor’s copy of Cider Press Review today! It’s their last print issue, and I really like how my poem pairs with the one on the page next to it.

  1. smiles…i like the playfulness of your opening as it made me think of messed up google searches i have done…a bit sad for the bee…what fun is being the sun if there is no one to revolve around it…or better, to share it with…

  2. Love the whimsy and musicality in this piece. Esp love these lines:

    “You, who live in a
    nest by yourself,

    no need to make honey,
    just nectar in your veins.”

    It reads contentment. Awesome work.

    • Thank you! That image of a bee’s wings, with their stained-glass-like veins, is one I think of often. As for the whimsy, it’s rare that I’d use a word like “cuddle” in a poem, but I dared myself to keep it.
