Today’s prompt for Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides poem-a-day challenge is to write a travel-related poem, some sort of movement from point A to point B. For some reason, my mind went immediately to bees, maybe because I’d just been checking out my roses.

“The Travelling Bee”

The rotund bee,
With its fat yellow and black
Stripes,
Buzzes its gossamer wings to power itself
Into the sweet centre of the
Cerise rose.

It snuggles and drones happily into
Gold globules of pollen, flecking its stripes and
Furry legs before bumbling off
On the wind and the power of its buzz
to the next irresistible
rose.
