To be successful,
One has to be one of three bees:
The queen bee,
The hardest working bee,
Or the bee that does not fit in.
One success is inherited,
And the next one is earned.
While the last one is
And happens on its own
~ “The Three Bees”, by Suzy Kassem

I love bees. I don’t see many of them in New York City these days, which makes me rather sad. I’m currently visiting with my in laws, and there are bees everywhere—in their garden, in the surrounding woods, and bees galore in a nearby lavender farm—life is good.
For today’s Weekend Mini-Challenge, I invite you to share a bit of bee poetry… specifically, we will write poems that explore a moment in the life of one of the three bees flying in the stanza quoted above. And because 3 is such a lovely number, let’s craft our poems in exactly three stanzas.
Please write a new poem for this prompt. Let us know which of the three bees you’ve chosen to write about. Add a direct link to your new poem to Mr. Linky. Buzz around other Toads’ gardens.
P.S. I will be gone most of the afternoon and early evening. I shall delight in your bee poetry later tonight. Read you then, dear Toads!
