Honey & Vinegar

Worker bees gather
a new season filled with hope
from my cubicle—
dreams of freedom and travel
stung with a droning despair

It’s often said that it’s better to work with a view than to be trapped in a dreary, windowless office. Though I sometimes wonder if being able to see what is tantalisingly out of reach is a distraction.

Maybe it’s a question of mindset. Perhaps that view is the reward for your endeavours. A reminder that there is more to life. You just have to take the sting before you get to the honey.
