My Honey Bee

Like honey the smell of the pink feathery blooms of the mimosa
Are my contemplations of your wrinkled brow when I shall weep
Knowing already, tender wounds which drip blood, that cut deep

Dressings are indulgent shadows of a multitude of kisses laid soft
To divert recollections that burden the holes where tears do pour
Foulness one tries to scrub off with steel brushes until far too sore

My honeybee, tasting the pollen off my au fait heart when in bloom
Dusting off sands of sorrow, freeing soft breaths once held captive
My tree grows a thousand blossoms, and my bees are more active

Safety lies within your gift of love; oneness birthed upon our union
Sharing hearts, where cells divide and fall upon one another at night
intertwining my legs with yours, we drop buckets of pollen in flight

Poem written by Joni 6/5/20 – Song below repost – sung and written by Joni

  1. The imagery is superb honeybun. It’s laced and silky. It’s sweet. The eroticism at the end is beautiful. I love this piece. Hearing your wonderful voice is a real treat. You made my Friday afternoon special.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend sweetheart.
    Plenty of love and hugs

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I really am delighted you enjoyed it. It should be a link right above the picture. You may have to actually go into the-inner-child.com to hear the song. Love and hugs πŸ€— Joni

  2. Excellent poem. I really love the poem you sing. You have a beautiful voice. Your voice has a sultry edge to it that makes the poem more alluring.

      1. That could be a cool collaboration, do you also sing? This could be fun. I tried to learn the guitar once when I was singing in a band on occasion and just don’t have that talent. He was a great classical guitarist and he told me I was the first person he met who he didn’t think could learn. Have a wonderful evening. Love πŸ’• Joni

      2. I sort of sing, but not really. Got to my blog site select music on the top menu bar and you can watch and listen to a lot of my original music and parodies. A lot of people thing my singing is bloody awful and I will say they are more right than wrong on that count. You can see my most recent music video at: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-5eR

      3. Your words, music and video is very entertaining and in fact we have a cat that looks just like your grey and white cat. I am going to listen to more videos before I comment on your singing. I am a brutally honest person. My managers have told me in the past. Tomorrow I am going back in for more examples. That was some mean guitar playing. Your babies are so cute. Love πŸ’• and hugs Joni. Have a beautiful evening.

      4. Thanks Joni. My guitar guru, Lewis, rates how bloody awful my music and singing is. He’s brutal. I appreciate brutal honesty. Jeep, the grey and white kitty, belongs to Resa who lives in Canada. Spunk is my kitty.

      6. Guitar is one of the easiest instruments to play and by far one of the most difficult. It’s an almost perfect instrument. I got the key of your song, D flat major. It’s going to be interesting.

    1. Thank you so much for your very kind words. I really appreciate them and feel blessed that I met you as well. I can’t however take credit for the photo – my honey bee took it this morning on a walk. I did digitally enhance the colors but he got the capture. You be well, blessed and sending you hugs too. Love πŸ’• Joni. All my photography is mine on the site unless otherwise posted. I definitely consider myself to be an amateur but I sure have fun with my camera.

  3. How lucky you are to have a honey bee, I’m sure it comes with cuddles and stings. Beautiful voice, I felt like i was in some classy upscale piano bar with pearls and Martini in hand. The affection, the care, the love, the passion all encompassing are your feelings in this piece. Just beautiful.

    1. Oh thank you dear Francisco. Your words of praise mean so much to me my dear friend. You are so kind to read my work as I can’t imagine how busy you must be. I too wish you an amazing weekend filled with inspiration and love. Sometimes I find myself wondering what a typically day is like for you. Obviously you are very disciplined by the amount of gorgeous work you create in a small amount of time. I am in awe. I am sending love and hugs from NC to be delivered wherever your path is today. πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸŒΊπŸŒΈβ€οΈπŸ’•πŸ˜˜ Joni

      1. Thank you so much Joni! Your words are sweet and from the heart and it is a pleasure to read your work as it is always positive and uplifting for the soul. I truly appreciate you and your lovely poetry and photographs. Thank you for those lovely pauses to my day. I guess I learned to be disciplined later in life and now it has paid off. I am trying to organise the blog and create the series that people will like and especially that I enjoy researching and studying about. I thank you for all that love, and I send you the same right back, from sunny Valencia to NC with love, peace and happiness. I hope you have a lovely and happy weekend with your husband. All the best,
        Francisco

I feel your love as well and hope you and your wife have a blessed and wonderful time in beautiful Valencia this weekend.
