Look not at the bee

for the grace of a butterfly

or be disappointed

A bee is a bee

though cloaked in butterfly wings

the bee will buzz and sting

but it can make honey

that no butterfly can.

    1. Thanks, Shanique. True, it is only recently that I learned to appreciate the bee. I often got stung when I was a child and because of that, hated the honey. 🙂

  1. lovely and meaningful write… Just bcus someone isn’t as swift, daring, conversational, flies as high… smiles… doesn’t mean they’re any less strong… esp in other fields.

    1. Thank you very much, Anthony, for the lovely words. I agree with you about people being gifted in different aspects of life/personality. Whatever will happen if everyone is the same? 🙂
