An Ocean of Takis: Swan of Bees

This week we had some silly fun with language. We discussed the idea that a poet can make almost nonsense and yet… your mind will make an image anyway! Now that’s a powerful mind… So we utilized this special skill of our imaginations, and had fun making curious images for our readers. Enjoy!
