I think this haiku conveys human relation between he and his relative.Issa lent honeybees box to the house next door that is his half brother'shouse. Time to time the bees come over to Issa's garden and stinghis family. Gentle honeybees transform themself into violent bees. Issa had no good emotion to his brother's family.
