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.

  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!

    1. Thank you, Janet Clare! Bees can teach us a thing or two about life. As can a child's sidewalk chalk drawing... :)
