(summer Poems) Some Haiku And Tankas - Bees And Lavender - Poem by Janice Windle


Blue rockets flare up
honey bees dive to the rescue
lavender bush hums.


Blue explosion
lavender humming with bees
- honey factory


Pass by lavender
humming factory workers -
busy bumblebees


Blue spike bends over
heavy bumblebee falls off -
hoverfly on task


Lavender humming
bees pierce purple flowers -
honey gathering

    Very pretty 'Ku's Janice. I have a particular affection for bees esp. bumble bees - so very cute and actually they shouldn't really be able to fly with all of that fur but they do! Really enjoyed these. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    Your our imagination has run riot with these highly original and clever haiku. I now see lavender and bees it quite different ways. Well done! 10 Karin Anderson (Report) Reply

    hi Janice,
    These are great images. I have been doing a lot of haiku writing lately, and I know how much work each one is. I appreciate your beautiful mind - a lavender lens - that has focused on this scene and made it visible to us. Thank you. Susan brought your poetry to my attention. She is also a poet who has her own take on haiku.

    A fest of bees and lavender - a heavenly haiku indulgence! Each image like a vivid snapshot in time - 'bees pierce purple flowers' is superb - a seasonal delight! S :) (Report) Reply
