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”
Back legs flying
Aimed straight ahead
Drowning the light, soaking in daisy
Frozen in time
Frozen in flight
By a brave photographer close by
Camera straight ahead
His glorious Micro-Nikkor lens
Opening to the sight
Of the bee intent on his flower.
