PAD Challenge: Poem No. 4 “Bee in Camera”

Published Categorised as Poetry

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”

In mid-flight
In mid-hover
Back legs flying
Forward into
Front legs
Ebony tail
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.
