Harmony

The sunflower on her own could only do so much

to reach her full potential

to share her gifts with the world

 

She knew

 

The sunflower knew how much she has to offer

 

When the honeybee came along, he helped her

 

He turned to her for sweetness

and only did the honeybee know how to properly approach her

 

The honeybee knew which seasons she was at her best

and which she was at her worst

 

He knew her & her ways

Her & her sunflower ways

 

Sunflowers aren't good at experiencing darkness

for they can only thrive under sunny days

 

The sunflower could easily get lost

but the sunflower can just as easily turn to the light

 

Turn to the light & spread its warm energies

 

He recognized her in her brightest of days 

by the way she stood tall toward the sun 

 

And was patient during her off season

because the honeybee understood 

the ways of nature

 

So he helped her

 

He captured her nectar, 

collected her pollen 

 

and pollinated the world with her sweetness 

(for only he knew how to do that)

 

The honeybee helped her beyond her roots

so her gifts can reach the world 

and the world can blossom from her beauty

 

And although all honeybees could approach all sunflowers

this one honeybee stuck to this one sunflower in particular

 

For both this honeybee and this sunflower

witnessed that, overtime, their symphony & their romance had produced more honey

 

, and had flourished more flowers,

 

than any other harmony found in nature.
