Trapped #midnighthaiku

Spreading fragile wings

Breaking free of yesterday

Seeking to fly free


The sleepy bumblebee flew straight into the abandoned web under the eaves. I could see it wrapping itself ever-tighter in the sticky threads with its struggles. I climbed on a chair and reached up a hand, freeing the furry fairy from the trap.ย  It flew up to my face, as if saying thank you.

  2. Oh I do love that you save the bee and it thanked you ๐Ÿ™‚ I saved a bee-like fly (I forget the name at the moment) from my house the other day when one of Ava’s friends was visiting. She knows I’m not normal, and said, “I don’t think my mom’s ever saved a bug.” Sort-of sad ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
