A brief moment of each day.

4/365 Failure to Survive

One of our honeybees perished clinging to the kitchen window screen.

On Sunday, I reserved hope that as the temperatures rose the bee would fly away as we’ve seen them do after other cool nights.

Not this time.

I can not help but think of this bee as an explorer pushing itself beyond familiar boundaries in search of new food sources…only to be caught unprepared by the dropping temperatures – knowing how close the warmth of home is, but being unable to find that last bit of necessary energy to push over the final peak and instead froze to death clinging to the side of the mountain.
