“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

why is it ever so hard to see

the little brown bumblebee?

you only notice it when its close;

when it’s buzzing right under your nose

you never notice the little bumblebee

hard at work, not living with ease

the bumblebee makes trouble not,

minding its business, tending to its job

you only notice the bumblebee when,

it flies ‘round, near your head again

you never notice the little bumblebee,

and in that sense, it’s just like me;

once i leave your line of sight,

not even once do i cross your mind

I may be a little biased, but I absolutely adore this poem! I can definitely relate to the little brown bumblebee myself. You are a wonderful writer, and captured the feeling of not being seen perfectly! Keep writing, I can't wait to see what you write next! :D
