A little bit about SezzaJai…
I keep bees, and these incredible creatures inspire my creative work in performance art, Bee Theatre and poetry performances. Last year I performed at DesFest, Writers Festival and EcoFair. I also wrote and self-published a book of bee poetry called ‘Pandeme of Bees’.
A Pandeme of Bees
is a composite of Greek words Pan and Deme meaning ‘All encompassing possession of ﬂowers and bees in one place’
Pandeme of Bees is a collection of melliﬂuous, sensual bee poetry. The poems are multilayered. They are cryptic, abstract, hidden, opening, lascivious. The themes interweave to create a word meadow to feed, entice, seduce and seed love for the bee and the hive.
