Bee-haiku Competition

Musing on what it might be like to be a bee in a swarm, I composed a bee-haiku:

Dale’s bee-haiku

So I thought that Apis bloggers might want to try their hand at their own bee-haikus – the winner will gain glory, great honour AND a guided tour of the Bermondsey Street Bees’ Apiary !

Just be sure to use the simple 3-line haiku format:

Line 1 : 5 syllables

Line 2: 7 syllables

Line 3: 5 syllables

All welcome – please reply to this post with your bee-haikus!  The winner will be selected on 30th June 2013.

  1. So Haiku’s of different styles for you (with apologies to Shakespeare…)

    Thank you, Sweetpea
    For being so open
    To my explorations

    The bee and I
    Do softly drowse
    Amongst the meadow-sweet

    Where the bee sups
    There sup I, honey on toast
    Tastes like sunshine

    1. That’s often the way with haikus – you hang around all week waiting for one, then three come along all at once !
