Bees- the benevolent invaders.....

An army of bees ,drone-led, stings
armed, on foraging flight, invaded
and colonised my vast field of mustard
fields, just exploding into flowers. They sucked
all blossoms, cargoed back home a field- load
of nectars. Helpless was I from whom to claim
the rent but I mistook barter for booty. Unlike
human colonisers who prey upon their own
species, looting and pillaging, the bees collect
the juice at the source without
bruising the plants ,and as debt in return, did
what the flowers in themselves could not do-,
pollinate them, vital for their fruition. The
interaction of the bees and the flowers, is
based on giving and receiving as a need and
fulfilment, as norm of nature, unfound
in the transaction of cash and flesh world.
