I don’t know what it is.
But it’s awash in flowers.
And fragrance oh so sweet.
I want to bundle the branches to my nose.
Except for the buzzing.
The tree is bee heaven.
I stand under the pink canopy for a full 30 minutes.
Trying to capture a bumblebee.
Through my lens, of course.
But not one stay will stay put long enough to focus.
I circle and dip as I camera dance.
And I wonder (because I don’t know much about bees) . . .
Can they even taste the nectar?
Can they feel the velvet under their feet?
Can they smell the perfume?
Can they hear His voice above their busy?
Are they so busy buzzing, bouncing, gathering, spreading that they can’t see they are enfolded by glory?
Can’t . They. Just. Stop?
Job, are you listening? Have you noticed all this?
Stop in your tracks! Take in God’s miracle-wonders!
~Job 37:14 (Message)
