Bee Sting
Bee Sting

Quite unexpected, it comes without warning

A burning intense bite, you wish to take away

It will not pass quickly, intent on teaching you a lesson

Nature’s reminder to beware, show caution next time

The stinger placed squarely into your tender flesh

Pulses red hurt, hot tears run freely

You can only pray it will subside soon

And you can forgive the inflictor of so much pain

Apparently an onion slice is the first aid for that...:) Never seen a poem about a bee sting before, though. Quite original!

Respected Cindy!... This deep poem is the combination of sadness and courage; you have command over depicting splendid ideas and imagination!

Perfect description of a perfect tragedy: dang, the bee sting!  I especially loved the red background.  This is a wonderful piece.

The only creature I ever kill is a wasp and then only under sufferance..I have been bee stung many times but always felt they did it out of fear...(where wasps sting without reason and do not sacrifice their lives in the stinging.)

The red background was great as highlighting the pain involved.
I understand the sense of hurt too..not physical hurt.. but a sense of why?

I'm sad to hear about the sting when all you were after was some sweet honey.

Unfortunately we lack the ablility to apply a bandage to cover an emotional wound.  It is my hope the burden that weighs you down can be made lighter with the help of friends.   Very well written Cin.

Cindy my pretty lady l can see the other words you have written very clear here and l hate seeing you in so much pain and wish l could take it away for you. But as with the sting, it does fade and heal, l am not just saying that, from my own experiences of being stung, i know only too well.

As always

My love and Best wishes to you

May peace find you and your family.

Ouch, we've all been stung before some time or another, I believe. I wish there was some sort of magical bandaid in first aid kits for this kind of injury, but sadly, none seem to exist. Hopefully, with time and good friends, the open wound will begin to mend... of course, there is always a scar as reminder. I love the words, the color, and the presentation- it all worked well together to put the painful point across. Great penmanship. Looking forward to more...

The infliction of pain on another is a mystery to me. Who would want to hurt someone like you? I can't even imagine that! As always Cindy, you get your point across without flaw, wonderful and very expressive writing. I am here if you need an ear to listen.  Henry

Well written, and no...first aid, and nothing else, fixes this kind of pain. Excellent Cindy...
