A friend challenged me to write about the bee
"Hummmm, buzzzz, roar."
here come a squadron;
bees, a hundred or more,
like B-52's, flying along.

Bodies, yellow and black,
bumble through springtime air,
crystalline wings upon their back,
pollen stuck in their hair.

I marvel at their erratic flight
and think of flower's bloom
in a bright morning light
spreading their perfume.

A technological wonder,
they say are getting extinct.
Long may bees thunder,
a sight and sound distinct.
