Haiku Poem – 蜂は友達

angry honey bees
fill the sky like storm clouds
the bee keepers are here

(Jim Woodhull)
はち が とぶ あらし の くも や ようほうか

My wife has a new hobby!  A few of her friends are bee keepers and one of their jobs are when there is a beehive in a home or other public place they get called to take it away.  Recently, in one of the churches here they were called to move a big beehive away.  There were bees flying everywhere and they were going after my wife and her two friends.  I was afraid of getting stung so I stayed in the car but was told that since I had a white shirt on and that I have very blonde hair and beard that they would leave me alone since they are not threatened by light colors.  That is why the bee keepers uniform is always white.  I got out of the car and the bees never bothered me!  One of my wife’s friends said that I am a friend of the bees!
