Do you think Bee feels

the weight of his work

the hourly call to busyness

each parcel of pollen

as a daily, dreaded delivery

to bring home?


But, I suspect he knows the blessing

of his singularity of purpose and is gifted

with the memory of his calling.

And so,

what shall we learn from Bee?

I think I will sit under Redbud a while

and catch a quiet message or two

from the wisdom

of Bee’s wings.



Hi, thanks for dropping by!
