In a way, very vertiginous, where is the bee, where is the lavender bush, a very deep “metaphysical” meaning in my opinion: we need something else to be somewhere, without,we’re nowhere, thank you Rachael and have a nice weekend!
Vertiginous? Yes, fascinating thoughts – and I love your Zen-like interpretation. But I am reverting back to a childlike way of seeing things: two bees mating on a lavender bush. Oh! A moment I shall capture in its simplicity. I hope that makes sense! And thank you for your lovely insights. I enjoy them so much.
Have a peaceful and productive weekend, F.
“A childlike way of seeing things”, oh Rachael! Yes!!! – it is the best way, and, may be, the only true one 🙂 take care!
And I’d like to echo F.G.M.’s comment!
Thank you, Chris!
I liked this 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Welcome Rachael 🙂
Short and sweet. A “Beeutiful” shot! I love seeing Honey Bees in my garden. Thank you, this Friday morning.
My pleasure. I keep finding little creatures doing things on the flowers in my garden, and by the time I get the camera out… 🙂
The title is what really makes this haiku resonate. An endless cycle. I definitely see a common thread coursing through your recent poetry. Deep thoughts, my friend.
Thank you, my talented friend. I’ve been trying to write some misery haiku about desolation and empty beaches and loneliness, but this is what comes out instead 🙂
Have a lovely weekend. They say it’s the hottest day of the year here (27 degrees says the car at midday). Even the car aircon feels like it’s not working!
This is rather wonderful – best of all is that I like it without any idea why that is so, so clever is your gift to impart the subliminal. Great stuff.
What a lovely thing to say, Mike. The truth is, I often don’t know what I’m saying either – it just comes out. Doh…
I believe Bob Dylan once said much the same regarding his lyrics so you are in good company.
Well in that case…;-)
Let me get this straight… There’s a bee, and then there’s a bee atop another bee? and you saw it! Wow… Special moment to capture. (Giggle) I hope they aren’t shy! 🙂
Haa! I averted my eyes so I didn’t embarrass them. Just in case…
Of course it wasn’t those particular bees in the photo – I never have my camera when I need it!
And welcome 🙂
Eternity, buzzing lavender beauty, in a bees’ boudoir…sundrenched garden magic, for those who see. Thank you, xox
Thank you for your lovely poetic response! xx
