Today’s prompt for Poetic Asides poem-a-day challenge is “to pick an animal; make that animal the title of your poem; then, write a poem.” I had just admired a photo of a bee taken by a fellow Flickrite using a macro lens I’ve been coveting for years and that came to mind when thinking up the poem for today.

“Bee in Camera”

Bee
Caught
In mid-flight
In mid-hover
Back legs flying
Forward into
Front legs
Ebony tail
Down
Small head
Aimed straight ahead
Obsidian eyes
Drowning the light, soaking in daisy
Frozen in time
Frozen in flight
By a brave photographer close by
Butt back
Camera straight ahead
His glorious Micro-Nikkor lens
Opening to the sight
Of the bee intent on his flower.
