Three weeks

Happy birthday, Andy

They're small creatures, and they are filling their bodies with sweetness, how could they not moan in happiness? The little worker bee lives, I have read, about three weeks. Is that long? Long enough, I suppose, to understand that life is a blessing. ~Mary Oliver

Three weeks, a lifetime
Of joy, pain, love; taste of these
Blessings? Bittersweet

I like that bittersweetness of your haiku and honey as well - every day.

Beautiful, Nora. I have been sick w/ the flu and not checked over the past couple weeks. I came today to catch up and this is such a gem.
