A Busy Buzzy Bee

Who came up with Poet this profession  
passed it down for generations †  
therefore I ignite the kerosene lamp †  
curl up my torso at the table †  
with sheets of parchment †  
and a quill from the basement †  
† †
When words trickle into poetry †  
I become a declared poetess †  
wearing a laurel crown † †
which not quite fit to my brows †  
searching for Emily Dickinsonís white robe †  
which not proper for me to cope †  
† †
Like a bee collecting nectar †  
I look for inspiration † †
from the sound of silence †  
from the void of space †  
from the great soulís voice † †
If not, I make up my own stories †  
† †  
Like a bee making honey †  
commenting on poems † †  
replying to comments †  
thinking who I should follow †  
being a supportive follower †  
seems more critical than being a scribbler †  
† †
On a bridle road †  
at the heavenly tavern †  
we are under the same light †  
some come in the day †  
others come at night †  
someone drives a fancy vehicle †  
I instead ride a humble camel †  
with a worn bell around its neck †  
when I come, I make lovely rattles †  
† †  
Right now under the kerosene lamp †  
I am shedding poetic tears †  
disguising as a poetess †  
dinking some inspiring tea †  
for I donít really fit  
I am just a busy buzzy bee
