Honey is sweet everyone knows
it is also slightly bitter many do not know
depending on the source of the collection
everyone should know.
The bees go round the garden
be that of any field for that matter
selecting the best possible resource
setting about with an indulgence.
Sitting on the flower blooming fully well
protruding well ahead from the stalk
the buzzing bees settle strongly on them
pulling out the maximum from the pollens.
The busy bees do go above the branches
that come out of the fruit trees
invariably mango, neem and tamarind
that grow in abundance in the tropics.
The honey from these trees
have a tinge of bitterness and sourness
that which being natural in the fruits they bear
having a potential medicinal value.
The honey that being gathered
get deposited in the racks made by man and nature
where the Queen bee does the extraction
while the honey starts dripping.
The story of honey related the task
that being not sweet as it tastes
quite exasperating as it is seen
yet serving mankind with good cash and kind.
Honey being a word referring to sweet heart
the sweetness ascribed to it comes after a task
an analogy crosses the mind know not why
that true love too comes after serious deliberation.
