March of Different Drones

Haiku Heights (Drone)


harmless drone
neither stings nor pollinates
humming to nature's rhythm

***

drone of destruction
humming its terror
seeking to snuff out life

  1. out of the 5 writers who submitted their haiku till now, your's is the only one that made me venture beyond my tire, and comment. a beautiful depiction indeed. drone bees mate and create life. the other drones sniff out life. :\ brilliant work!

  3. Maggie,
    Great take on the Drone prompt! I didn't think of the insect when I saw the prompt. Now I want to go look up drone to learn about the different kinds.

    1. When I first saw "drone", bee was not what came to mind. But did look up drone bee after realizing from others who wrote about the bee for some inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

  4. Love the juxtaposition of the two types of drones connected via the word humming - nice!

    Funnily enough, my brother started a bee hive this weekend, so I helped him install his bees. It was kind of scary!

    1. Thank you! I have two friends with bee hives. They find it so soothing. I don't mind the bees that visit my flowers but hives are scary to me too! Where those nets... ;-)

  5. Love the contrast of creation and destruction! But particularly lovely is the title of the two, drawing the images together as a march!

  7. In the US, "drone" is so prevalent as the preferred method of war right now. Hard to escape that meaning. Thank you for the lovely comments!

  10. My mother tells me of her days during the war in England and how the drone of the overhead bombers could be heard, now as I read your 2nd stanza that was the first picture in my mind. Now I am also hitting myself that I didn't use that for mine :-( Loved both.

    1. Thank you. Never too late for you to add one. To write one for yourself. Odd that the bee was a totally absent definition when I first saw the prompt. Appreciate your comments and visit.
