My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
So simple and short, yet so true. Love it! :)
True! Beauty attracts us, and the nectar sustains us.
After beauty we can find the essence..
I'm glad it wasn't lured into a Venus fly trap! Things that are beautiful on the outside aren't always on the inside!
NP, the only reply I can come up with, other than how much I enjoy your aphorisms, is a portion of "I'd Love to Change the World" by Ten Years After: Life is funny, Skies are sunny, Bees make honey, Who needs money, Monopoly. I'd love to change the world, But I don't know what to do, So I'll leave it up to you..."A friend of mine who keeps bees tells me they are ultra-sensitive to any changes in the environment, serving as monitors for pesticides and other pollutants. When we mess around with hybridizing the flowers they're naturally attracted to, they don't like it because those plants don't provide the same amount or quality of pollen or nectar bees need to thrive. Moral of the story: let the bees (and flowers) be! :-)
A yummy win win.
Beauty within is the sweet nectar. The attraction is the the flower.
I wonder what first attracted the man to the bee hive.
I totally agree with Layla!!
I like your blog..CoolWelcome join my blog please ..Thanks so much
Should it not be here that there should be a semi-colon where you have put your first period? Is this not so? Or is this: so not? I am not sure, are you?
I wonder what first attracted man to the honey comb.
How like Rumi this is! You are a romantic, NP. :)
The bees plunder the flowers here and there, but afterward they make of them honey, which is all theirs.- Montaigne
Lyrical, but not always true. Sometimes beauty hides corruption within.
I love this one. :D
I love this aphorism too.
I liked this one, Np. It got me thinking...physical beauty is but skin deep and like the flowers it soon fades, but the beauty of the heart - when rightly cultivated - only grows more beautiful with time.
