“The Waiting Bee” by Gary R. Hess – A Love Poem

The Waiting Bee

by Gary R. Hess

The bee sat waiting upon the petal
for his queen to arrive.
He fluttered his wings
in anticipation.
He shuffled to the right
with his eyes bright and big.
He scooted to the left,
moving his bristly legs.
Flap, flap
his wings moved again.
Flap, flap
they shuttered again.
