Some twitter-followers asked me for bee-haiku and bumblebee-haiku, unfortunately I've written only three (oh, I remember, there is another bee-haiku but it's in German only). I've informed one follower via direct message (twitter) but now other followers have asked me.

Here again my bee-haiku (the first and the second haiku were written some years ago, the last haiku is from this year, short ago on this blog):

withered lavender --
again the bee

(published: WHC-German, 2005 — editor: Dietmar Tauchner and editorial staff)

blooms in winter --
the beemaster murmurs
about death

(published: Chrysanthemum, April 2007)

nearly lunchtime --
I can't stop watching
the bumblebee

(published on my blog 2009)

early autumn --
the sun does its very best
for the flower and me
(AW, 2009)

In our garden you can find Japanese windflowers -- white, pink. I see them from my kitchen window and naturally when I work in the garden where is a lot to do in the moment -- autumn is early this year.
