    Nectar fills the cells
    Bee alchemists hard at work
    Turn flowers to gold

    There are too many beautiful haikus in this thread for me to put a thanks on all of them.

    Does the forum do a calendar and sell it? Should it? Methinks maybe. With great photographers and poets this could go places. At least every member would buy a copy.

    The ideal calendar for me would have room to write notes on what hive I looked at that day. maybe a 2 inch square?

    Not a haiku, but what came to me this morning as I looked at my hives. To the tune of Johnny Appleseed song:

    The Lord is good to me;
    And so I thank the Lord;
    For giving me, the things I need;
    The sun and the rain and the honeybees;
    The Lord is good to me.


    And the midwest is about to get rain. Something to be grateful for.

    Gypsi beat me to it. I too have been reading through all of these poems and wondering if we could help support the site with some form of book. I like the calendar idea! run with it!

    Well now, the guy to do the running is probably Iddee? Or Charles? since they have all the files. Maybe in the winter, after the bees are all tucked in. We could vote on pics and make it a community effort. Needn't be a print calendar I suppose, although that would be nice. Even one we can print out ourselves might work.

    Quite the honey bee
    of soil and corn stalks comprised
    The bee maze opens

    look for her Highness
    Frame by frame I inspect them
    Ugggh, I dropped a frame!

    The snow is melting
    Rain washes away winter
    A new bee season

    Warm enough today?
    The sun shines and warms the earth
    Time for a quick flight

    attending to them
    working my way frame by frame
    One gave me a kiss

    From two hives to three
    then five, seven, eleven
    to eight for the cold.
