The Beehive – Day 22


Not everything that comes from
our Beehive in Wellington; seat
of New Zealand Government;
goes down well. But in the main,
over recent years, citizens have
shown some faith in the work
that goes on in The Beehive.

Though it’s not all honey, step up –
Bees; make sure you are always

“But at the same time, the “staying power” of the mango underscores the strength of metonymy in poetry. Following Poets & Writers’ prompt, today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that invokes a specific object as a symbol of a particular time, era, or place.”
