All Those Bees

have you ever gone for a walk in the countryside
to find yourself marveling at all the flowers along the way
to find yourself stopping
to watch a bumblebee busy at work
its buzzing music to your ears
its moving like a strange dance
and the longer you watch
the more mesmerized you become
all your attention on this wondrous little bee
and then slowly
within your vision’s periphery
creeping in
steadily
you realize
that you are not watching one but maybe fifty bumblebees
all flying around the same flowers
the buzzing sound now roaring in your ears
alive and growing in intensity
until finally
you take a step back
feeling a bit like an intruder
and very much outnumbered
wondering
how it is you didn’t notice
all those bees to begin with

Bee Kind!
