Bee Watching

I close my eyes
and listen
to the buzzing.
I close my eyes
and listen.
I hear their fly past
and their warm settling.
Sometimes they will alight on me
as if they wish to examine
this strange creature,
this lone interloper
in their world.
I open my eyes
when I feel them
so that I can admire
their beauty
and strangeness
before they move on,
or crawling
and leave me alone again.

Lynn White lives in north Wales. Her work is influenced by issues of social justice and events, places and people she has known or imagined. She is especially interested in exploring the boundaries of dream, fantasy and reality. Her poem ‘A Rose For Gaza’ was shortlisted for the Theatre Cloud ‘War Poetry for Today’ competition 2014. This and many other poems, have been widely published in anthologies and journals such as Apogee, Firewords, Indie Soleil, Midnight Circus and Snapdragon.
