Heal for your honey - A Haiku.


Not sting, not attack
Buzz is what it's all about
Work for the honey

----------------------------

Pain by the loved stings
But move on, if not for you
Heal for your honey




Honeybees are the one of the most busiest creatures i've heard of. Disciplined and hard-working. They buzz all the time to work, to collect honey. They don't mean to sting or attack, do they? For when they sting, they die. So i wish we din't make them feel threatened! Anyway, from honeybees i learn not to work by stamping others on our way up. Work to achieve your goal in the right way, work to be happy. What is working if you don't enjoy it, and what is success when you can't share it with the people who helped you all the way up?

Nothing ever goes according to our plans always. God and time have their own clock running for us. So when unexpected events occur involving our loved ones, especially the ones which hurt, we are shattered. It hurts, but do we sustain that pain forever? Why? A true person who loves you would never in the world wish for something bad to happen to you, whatever the situation be. So if not for yourself, heal for the one you love. Heal for your honey.



This Haiku is written for The Heights of Haiku - April 2012. The prompt for today is 'HONEYBEES'.
