Bee

careful

where you walk.

A bee-dazzled friend

wants to remind you

to bee the change you want

to see by putting the past

bee-hind you and doing your own

sting on the buzzy flight path of life.

  1. Putting the past bee-hind you. Love it.

    A nonet works well here. It looks a bit beehive-ish.

    1. Thanks, Cathy! I was going for the hive look. :)

  2. Having a goal of making a 'sting' where one can is a "bee-ootiful" way to make life's plans, Bridget.

  3. Oh a nonet. A busy bee reminds us to make the most of every opportunity to find the right flight path! But avoid that sting at all costs!!! Fun!
