Oh to be a Bee

In and out of flowers

Dodging trees

Chasing shadows

On the breeze.

Loving rays of sun

Shining down

Keeping busy pollinating

As nature’s ambassadors

Of life’s production line.

A horrible incident where my best friend suddenly shared jealousy of a mutual friend and I (all females), and our subsequent “making up” this morning led me to think about the homeless, and how (some) of their lives could be transformed if they, too, had a “best friend” to give them non-judgmental support like I have (mostly).

I am not saying I would have sunk to the level of actually being homeless, had my best friend not fully apologised and professed her love for me all over again.

It certainly straightened my spine, but also caused me to look around at the … Read More »
