Imagine

By Zeenat Khan

Imagine the first bee

Imagine the world before

Imagine the sunflowers host

Now move a little, turn and yearn

see its garden, garbed in green

How Van Gogh would have

painted the sunflower, imagine

How sunflowers would have

been without bees, imagine.

.

Imagine the first bee

Imagine the world before

Imagine the honey without bees

Imagine the life without this

Imagine the ancient tombs of Egypt

Archaeologists marvel to visit

How the dead would have been

embalmed without honey, imagine.

.

So, Imagine, Imagine

Imagine this poem without bees

Imagine a swarm of poems, look, see,

of flowers, of honey, of bud, of dead,

of lives, without bees, imagine

Imagine the world without bees.

Imagine!
