1. Honey doesn't have the nutrients to support good yeast health on its own for long.
2. Sugar content is way too high for most yeast to handle.
Not that something wouldn't happen, but it's not really likely that much will occur right away. Honey being hygroscopic, if you just sprinkled the yeast on top and let it sit open in a warm humid place you will get a little more out of it or if you were to pour some water on top of a bucket of honey, then dusted the yeast on top of that you may see a better reaction but really....why would you want to?
