|I am not sure how any of us will deal with the loss of the Bee--I have been told it is a possibility--I ate honey in France in 76 and when I came back to Canada later that summer I didn't like the taste--somehow the honey in a town called Niort was superior honey--there --look at that you got an old memory out of me with this poem----LOL--well done|

|Humans keep encroaching on the natural order of things and thus the gifts of nature are endangered. Nice piece.|

|Regis, as is mine, your concern is duly noted and we can hope that many more will share our concern for nature's dutiful workers of miracles. May love and peace be always with you my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|These thoughts are pollinators in themselves, dear Regis. The bees certainly need and have our attention as their absence causes much distress as we come to realise how very much we depend on - and love them! I'm very concerned about this cold spring causing them still to be inactive - those that remain. And a lack of spring blossoms for them to be attracted to, too. Plus the fact that so many of our over-forced flowers are actually lacking in genuine pollen. They are amazing creatures and the fundament on which our lives depend, so we need more Bee writes to be right! xx|

|What a unique way to make a statement about our world. I would have thought you lived in Texas if I did not know better. A beautiful world fading faster than the majority will ever know, conveniently not paying attention to nature.|

|I am not sure I understand what the last line of your poem means. And ending the poem with this line gives it a feeling of incompleteness to me for some reason I can't explain. I like the poem though and it is surely a deep one. Much to think about here metaphorically. Thank you for sharing.|

|Poem that truly matters...issues that affect not just bees
but the entire life on earth; "If the bee disappeared off
the face of the earth, man would only have four years left
to live". - Albert Einstein.
Thank you Regis for BEE-ing sensitive and made us aware
of the need to plant flowers in our gardens. Isabella.

|I can't understand why we are so obsessed with killing insects. Most insects are very beneficial and invasive species can usually be controlled by biological means or other insects. Instead, we rely on a quick fix of chemical pesticides that kill even beneficial insects like bees and get in our groundwater where we ingest them. Why didn't we learn our lesson from “The Silent Spring” when we almost destroyed all the predatory birds like the bald eagle with DDT, also dangerous when it got into mother's milk. Most young people today don't even know that happened.
I just saw new TV ads for Roundup, a notorious herbicide being used by factory farms, touting a new way to deliver more power against weeds (the source of biodiversity) and pesticides by Amdro and Ortho, two chemically based killers that indiscriminately kill more than targeted insects.
It's time we get off our lazy asses buying chemicals to save our precious Franken plants and live with our insect friends. Sheeple beware, you are creating a planet you won't like by feeding corporate greed instead of yourselves with healthy food and water.

|We are locusts on this earth, rust on metal, destroying evrything in it's path it seems. I read an article about the honey bees dying off due to man made chemicals which said that once the bees are gone man only has a few years to live. (Aren't we just so darn smart?!!!)

|Serious and dire. I saw only two bees in my orchard this year. I hope they were wild ones. No fruit, of course. Maybe the internet will pick this one up.|

"Bee" a poem of dire straights..The beekeepers are alarmed
as well we should be also. I can remember honeybees as a
little girl. Lots of stings on my bare feet. The clover's white
flowers filled with honeybees. Still love to go barefoot in the grass!! Excellent message.

|The birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees. These are the B's in our ABC's. And we are the D's and do more damange than all of these. Your theme is spot on.|

|This could never be called 'silly', Regis. It is such an important message. Here in France the farmers are just not taking it seriously and refuse to adjust their use of chemicals. The European Union has agreed that measures should be taken but France does not enforce them. The French mindset is about 30 years behind the rest in most things. It is hoped that the rest of Europe and the US will set an exmple.

To roll among the petals

Nothing "silly" about this, Regis...a gentle poem with a strong message. Well done, pal.
|Reviewed by John Domino
You expressed yourself very well
These are deep thoughts you just shared
You are attached to a past relationship
But you are the one that still cares
I can somehow feel your hurt and pain.
Yes, I had relationships that simply vanished
I really don't know why; it was gone in a flash!
People you care for just place you on ignore
Then they don't respond to you anymore.
It's like someone had just died.
All I know that it hurts - deep down inside.
Peace, love and abundant blessings to you my friend,
PS: Yes, you just helped me express myself. It's something thats been on my mind. Thank you Regis, Thank You very much...
