THE BEE FINDS A HOME

The bee is a yellow light.
The brilliant bee
lands on a flower.
The bee sucks
the nectar out of the flower.
The bee sleeps
on the flower.
The bee has a new life.

from 2016 Rattle Young Poets Anthology

Why do you like to write poetry?

Priya Bartlett: “I like writing poems because ideas are always swirling around in my mind and when my thoughts reach the pencil the swirling lands on the page!”
