Sweet little bee, so industrious, so intense.
You didn’t see me get
oh, so close.
I waited, holding my breath, expecting
you to fly away but
you didn’t.
I took your picture and you
kept on working, burrowing
your head and once again I
was in awe.
Creation. God. Beauty. Wonder. Holiness encapsulated
a busy bee.

I am grateful there are still bees.
Bees being busy.
Bees “doing their thing.”
May humanity recognize the importance of keeping this planet safe
for you and for themselves.
May you always be here
“doing your thing,” busy bee.
