The Awakening

     The Awakening of Bees


The bees came out with gladness this spring,

Perhaps relieved that this year

They did not emerge into noise

And the seemingly endless bustle of humans.


They could go about their business of flitting

And flying and gathering nectar

With their wings buzzing

A glorious prayer to God.


And then returning to their hive,

They issued reports of the world

To the others

And fed their queen.


“Oh, wonderful!” They hummed to each other.

“This spring. This particular spring,

When the traffic was stilled and the voices hushed

Is the spring we awakened to joy.”
