This is the prompt for this piece

The sandal could have been picked up by a creature to build a nest or someone may have picked it up and thrown it away, or it may have been the sandal that they lost.

I have to do a sequence of four poems thinking about the importance of butterflies and bees to continued existence. They are tiny but without them, we would not be here.

The song is "Beeswing" a tragically beautiful song by Richard Thompson the only connection is the Bee but it is an excuse to share this beauty.



The Bees Pollinate

Flowers And Seasonal Crops

So That We Might Eat




Butterflies Also

Do Take The Stamen's Pollen

To Feed The Pistil




Insects Pollinate

Flowers Will Bloom In Colour

Fruit Will Grow For The Harvest


Bees And Butterflies

Small But So Significant

Keeping Humanity Alive


This was my first attempt at this
