Give and take

The bee and the flower

The bee and the flower

“Give and Take… for to the bee a flower is a fountain of life and to the flower a bee is a messenger of love.  And to both bee and flower, the giving and the receiving is a need and an ecstasy.” ~ Kahlil Gibran

Men, remember the bee.  It uses the flower but never destroys it.  It hovers around gently,  showing importance and respect.  It is a give and take relationship, and it never abuses.  It sucks the nectar out, but comes back for more.  Oh well, I should have turned this into a poem.

Took this photo somewhere in a cool garden in Buda sometime two years ago.

    Amazing photo; am I not standing in that garden with you now? The quote is thought provoking as well. Well done!

    I would love to use this on my blog; would you mind?
