I Want To Be A Hapless, Happy Bee - Poem by Mark Heathcote

I want to dive into a flower.
Be engulfed by its desire
I want to feel its living fire its power
Source its one-sunlight prior.

I want to taste that vital kiss.
Firmly pressed embolden on my lips
Find how that fire extinguishing exists
When elements spoke of lay dead ellipse.

I want to see life's frenetic joy.
In a whirling dervish, spinning dance—
Not just see them reemploy
But feel entire my whole being in its plans.

I want to be a hapless, happy bee
… Ah a young, fair maiden swatted
With a book of love, poems on her knee
'Here whilst; my unending dreams they're subverted'.

    I want to see life’s frenetic joy
    In a whirling dervish, spinning dance
    Not just see them reemploy
    But feel entire my whole being in its plans.

    Lovely imagination and a fervent desire to suck the intoxicating pleasures of life, as a bee sucks honey from a flower! A sure 10
