The Pollinators


Six months after the bees disappeared, the homeless did too.

They planted us in the fields; Taught us to see the invisible...gather impossibilities...guarantee your survival.

We are the pollinators.

Without us, you starve.

Indeed... a subject near and dear to me. We starve without them. That ought to have us sit up and take notice, and yet it does not. Well said!

Without the bees crops don't survive, it is a disaster waiting to happen.

I'm glad you devoted a piece to this issue! Not enough people realize it's a problem.

A royal first-person at that. Like the homeless disappearing first.

Excellent job writing about a topic far more important than most people appreciate. That you did it with such skill and flair, just makes it all the more extraordinary an effort. Thanks for creating such grand work.

You've captured the essence of an important topic, that far too many ignore. Beautifully written!
