55-Human Minds Buzz Like Bumble Bees

Human minds
buzz
Like bumble bees,
But human hearts
Don't beat
The way bees do.
Human thoughts have wings,
Like bees do,
But isn't it true
Bees behave
While humans believe,
get inspired by spring showers,
and use their imaginations to express themselves?
Bees leave their marks on flowers,
Human make history via humanly powers.

People and bees both have honeys, but people have more than one kind.

(Some people also get buzzed!) ;)

You reminded me of this: Bee Haiku

Looking back to the post with the tomatoes...On Netflix I saw that old Ginger Rogers/Fred Astaire movie (Shall We Dance, 1937) last night where they sang Let's Call the Whole Thing Off for the first time. It was written by George and Ira Gershwin.
