Cooperation #midnighthaiku

All nature’s children

Fragile and in need of care


The little bee seemed only half awake. Dazed and uncertain, it fell from the sky and landed on my son, sipping his morning coffee on the patio. We watched for a moment as it struggled to find its feet.

I picked it up, placing it beside a tiny pool of honey and water I had drizzled on the fence. Within minutes, the tiny creature was back at work, foraging in the purple loosestrife, collecting the makings of honey.

Sharing nature’s dance

Both duty and privilege

Kinship recognised

  2. Wonderful post. It reminds me that we are one with nature, and that helping can go cross-species. Beautiful lesson!

  4. How wonderful, Sue. I love bees but I am allergic to them so prefer to watch them from a distance.
