there are flowers and there are bees

10 of 12 given words:
begonia (a plant whose flowers have brightly
coloured sepals but no petals grown for their flowers)
water dirty rows assist porch softly
doily (a small lace or paper put on a
plate under cakes or other sweet food)
suit careful

there are flowers and there are bees
begonia or otherwise nectar-producing
perfect combination to lots of honey
hanging hives in the wild in the beginning

the worker bee goes hunting flower to flower
upon returning regurgitates to empty its tummy
enzymatic and water evaporation process occurs
honey stored in honeycomb wax not considered dirty

a thriving commercial bee-keeping industry
hives upon rows built within a contained lodge
to assist in the collection to make it easy
unlike lucky folks with a stray hive at their porch

breakfast mornings with honey-dipped croissant
favourite offerings of the family enjoying softly
with plates over a doily, suited for the occasion
careful not to spill but to accord gratitude in all sincerity

  1. We like honey here. We used to have a lot because our high school principal moonlighted as a beekeeper. Every year that he would come to hour home, Nebraska drive to Texas, he would bring several jars of his honey. Most of his product he sold to a honey seller having his own brand name to resell in grocery stores.

  2. Mmmm! Reading your poem first thing in the morning while my coffee brews, I'm thinking I might have toast and honey for breakfast today!

  3. I love the breakfast scene you painted here, Hank...especially the doilies!

  4. Specially love the delightful close. Delicious.

  5. Bees sure do a lot of work, as do some breakfast cooks.

  6. The Motor Repair and Maintenance Market has been bifurcated into general repair and overhaul. Currently, general repair dominates the market, thereby holding the largest share. The general repair segment has been further categorised into bearing, stator and rotor. Preventive maintenance of motors lessens the risk factor, saves energy, improves equipment life and reduces downtime. Regular use of electric motors in various end-use industries, such as HVAC, mining, food and beverage, etc., is impelling the growth of the motor repair and maintenance market worldwide. Apart from this, the utilisation of electric motors has grown significantly in various sectors due to increasing automation.
