the beekeeper


the keeper of bees
lives alone upstairs.
a man with a golden soul
and eyes
infinitely blue
like the skies we share

he charms bees,
he charms me.
i have bruises on my knees.

like me,
the bees return home
to drink the nectar
he gives so freely.

he feeds the trees.
he feeds the bees
planting flowers
in flower beds.

as he planted me
in his flowering bed

the beekeeper
a gentle man
a man of love

a love so thick and sweet
like honey
