Bee’s Knees

So much sweetness comes

from the knees of bees


Sticky honey that drips from your fingers

Fragrance that fills your mind as you walk past flowers

Small reminders of sweetness


Sure you could give ‘sweetness’ a scientific explanation,

Talk about chemicals and neurons,

But really when it comes down to it,

The calculation isn’t the reason

for all this sweetness.

It’s the bees’ knees.

The tiny little connections

on such small creatures

that collect the stuff


For flowers

For honey

For buzzing with excitement

For sweetness

that is just

the bee’s
