Verse – “Bee”

To look once @ a BEE & see

what needs to be seen, will take me

all my days.  BEES & flowers are

near as a sting & scent–& far

beyond my ken as they can BE.

About Gordon C. Stewart

I've always liked quiet. And, like most people, I've experienced the world's madness. "Be Still! Departure from Collective Madness" (Wipf and Stock Publishers, Jan. 2017) distills 47 years of experiencing stillness and madness as a campus minister and Presbyterian pastor (IL, WI, NY, OH, and MN), poverty criminal law firm executive director, and social commentator. Our dog Barclay reminds me to calm down and be much more still than I would be without him.

  1. Descriptive poem and a beautiful picture.
    Even the smallest of God’s creatures can only be described and almost never fathomed.
