    I love this one. So simple, and yet the last half, "gold-dusted bee", added so much more than the seven words in this haiku. Unexpected and delightful.

    Bees often compared to humans for being highly social. Saving for that rainy day, they collect and store. Unlike humans they have no emotional attachment to it. That is why I like ?gold dusted?, the bee is oblivious, she is just doing her job.

    Keep writing bee haiku! ? nice one Bob

    The one-line format is a good choice for the haiku, recalling the flight of a bee. Both visual and tactile. I like this a lot.

    trembling bloom
    on the crooked path
    a honey bee
