Twenty Bee Poems
I thought I was stalled out at nineteen poems about honeybees, and then I finished a twentieth one. I've been working on these poems since sometime around March 2011 when I first knew that Trish was going to start beekeeping. So it isn't a speedy project, but it's one that means a lot to me. The poem I wrote today is about the commercially kept bees who are trucked around the country to pollinate various crops. If you haven't heard about this practice, check out this article from 2009 from Discover: Who Killed All Those Bees? We Did.
