“Bee” Careful

IMG_7258 (2) (640x453)

The sugary scent of Sprite must have lured him to the can.

Unaware of how close he was to a fatal swat,

he lingered, soaking up every bit of sweetness he could find.

I had no reason to hurt him.

I was really in his world anyway.

Outside, I feel a bee has a few more rights than I do.

Inside may be another story.

As I watched him move around the rim of what to him was a metal flower,

I couldn’t help but think of how close I was to also being hurt.

One sip from the can without looking,

and I would have had a nice big bee sting right on the top of my lip.

So there we were.

A bee and me…..

both hovering over a sweet but dangerous drink on an otherwise beautiful, sunny day.

I’m starting to see life a little more like this moment.

One sip and everything changes.

And it’s made all the difference.
