NATIONAL POETRY DAY

Today is National Poetry Day.
Here's one I wrote earlier .... and an old atc to accompany it....


THE BEEKEEPER
The Beekeeper 
and I
keep our
secret conversations
light,
polite
and mostly
avoidant
of the 
memories 
we two 
share
of
the 
honey 
we made together
and
how it's
sweetness
was a
passing luxury,
quite aware
that the
inferior versions
we 
settled for
will never
equal
our 
own
peculiar
brand.
