 Marc Latham’s new Folding Mirror poem wonders if insects such as bees and ants think of their queens as goddesses.  Bees have democracy, so why not religion?
Maybe the idea in some human religions of the Earth Mother giving birth to all life was inspired by the insect colonies, as the queen bee and queen ant are the mothers of all others in their colonies.
One day we might have the knowledge and technology to find out.  Until then, here’s the poem:
My God, An Insect
high above
temple building
Mother Earth
complex colony
