Forgiveness–a social insect–
feels fuzzy, visits flowers every day
(A few hardy species range
into very cold climates)
Once common in the West
forgiveness is in danger
Its decline could cause changes
in the countryside
Forgiveness should be incapable
of flight (a misconception)
All you need is a spare hour
to go walking, recording
forgivenesses you see
Inspired by NaPoWriMo’s prompt: Write a replacement poem (swap an intangible noun for a concrete one). I found some great info about bumblebees at Wikipedia, heraldnet.com, and edinburghnews.scotsman.com.

You did a spectacular and beautiful job with this prompt! I bailed, not up to the challenge.
Aw, thanks. You know, it was surprisingly fun!
