    "Buggez" and "BArticles"/ by Dr Margaret Aranda /                              Dedicated to Javier Cámara-Rica and Juan Imaz for naming us 'Beez' instead of 'Ladybugs,'                                                Even though, yes, Ladybugs are One of my Most Favorite...

    Very creative and fun, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. I have read a couple of your books and am now gaining appreciation for your giftedness at writing poetry. It is stretching my cultural horizons, my friend. I enjoyed this buzz. Thank you.

    #19 Awe. But it is your picturesque Buzzes, the flight of the trees, the awesome @Ali Anani, the speckled maltese....extracting @debasish majumder, exacting @Anees Zaidi, prose-filled Buzzes of poetry! It all works together, spurring us all on to look within like Dorothy and the ruby shoes, to find that we sought what we had all along. It just took some one who cared to point it out, and that's what I see👀 is the best thing about beBee👀. @Franci Eugenia Hoffman, @Juan Imaz.

    #6 You know I'm just funnin' and deep in the hive, I don't know how, but the ladybug just whizzed on by. So it's her fault really, as I saw high heels to go, straight all the way to her pointy tip-toes. And she had no nose! She actually Squealed! She realized that she just didn't belong and went away merrily, happily creeping along. So, I thought I'd paint her a silly tune since it was just a hot afternoon. And I felt humorous as I sometimes do, just ask @Randy Keho ~ he knows what happens to my growth whenever I wear my ~🎀pink hair bow🎀~ Appreciate your sense of humor!

And Thanks be to God that we are all here, sometimes serious, curious, delirious, or just fantastically spurious! The Flight of the BumbleBee is my Fav Piano Song! Somehow, biology and science, nature and God, music and love...they just all get along. And that's who we strive to be ~ the best Bees in the HoneyBee Sea!

    Nice playing with words @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. I wonder if you like to be bugged? Ladybugs are marvelous, but they don't produce honey, they don;t build spectacular and fractal honeycombs and bees don't see red color- the color of ladybugs. It is a mix of the seen and unseen. Love your spirit.

    Ladybugs are lovely. Europeans fondly name them 'lady beetles' or 'ladybird beetles.' With over 5,000 species in the world, there is much to be told as they are uncurled for us to swirl in their all being a 'girl.' Or are they? Ahh....

    Poetically, there are 'two sides' of the 'ladybug' coin. On the one hand, many varieties are beloved by farmers, as the ladybugs consume aphids, the insects that destroy their crops. Laying literally hundreds of eggs at a time inside the aphid's abode, thee larvae are instantaneously hungry when 'hatched.' Whoah! Look out, aphids!

    The 'eewie' ladybugs kill crops and the hearts of farmers, whose sweat turns to fret. Enter, the "Mexican bean" beetle, and the "squash" beetle. Poor farmers on their heels? What do they feel?

    "Oh, but I don't have crops. I just have my own garden, and I live in the city, where it doesn't affect me." Oh, challenge be told, if I can be cold, as you must know that you are cold.

    Go buy them in a box from your local nursery ~ and that would be in the "Refrigerator" Section. Then, watch your garden grow as you 'let them out' in the dusk, leaving you with untold roses to smell as sweet as musk.

    And I won't say that I told you so.

Hive dedicated to @Ali Anani who told me I could to this, and whom I love like no other bee but don't be jealous, as there's plenty of love to go around (in case you have not noticed lol). To those who can add a dimension they didn't know they had: @debasish majumder, @Mamen Delgado, @Franci Eugenia Hoffman and more.

    The Smiles of Tormented Sorrow
    The Smiles of Tormented Sorrow/ by Dr Margaret Aranda /  Dedicated to Debasish Majumder in response to his poem, Tears, A Wonderful Boon! dedicated to Ali Anani, Ph.D.With gratitude for encouraging latitude profoundly bestowed from Ali Anani, Ph.D. on both of us poets.         ...

    #3 You touch my heart warmly, my poet friend! And yes, thanks to Dr @Ali Anani for spurring both you and I along to explore our 'poetry' side of writing. The true poets may not like my un-rhymes, or actually saying "Every one does it" ~ as @Leckey Harrison liked....they'd rather have me say it without saying it. When I wrote this piece, I realize now that I had our medical students in mind, to impart some semblance of empathy on the process of trauma, the pain, the bodily reactions, and the poetic rhythm of just the raw heartbeat. So I think this should be part of a start for a book of poetry for medical students. To impart. Thank you so! ~ (and oh! we are both in this together! yes! ~ thanks to our beloved Dr Anani! ❤️ 💛 💙 💜!

    Perhaps too intense for the average reader, observations of trauma, tragedy and dying from the eyes of a medical professional. Those used to dealing with the harshest realities of death are perhaps best suited. Am thinking of inspiring medical students to not sever their emotions from tragedy, but to have empathy and be prepared for one's own translations. Too many doctors are accused of being harsh and unsympathetic. The medical students, interns, residents, and Fellows in training need to get used to a new aspect of training. Commending Dr. Asani for encouragement here. Thank you, as Debasish enter this arena. What is it, exactly? "Medical Poetry" or "Scientific Poetry" or "Pixel Health Poetry?" @Dr. Allen Brown, @Leckey Harrison, @Randy Keho, @Brian McKenzie, @Max Carter, @debasish majumder, @Anees Zaidi, @Mohammed A.
