Touched by a Bee
[Learning To Be A Flower]
I was waiting for the bus today
In front of Price Rite
It felt so good to be in the warm sunshine on October 21, 2019 at about 11:40 AM.
I was sitting on the bench appreciating the warmth of the sunshine.
There were many bees flying about – and a few on the ground there.
I wondered about that . . . so many bees . . .
I haven’t bee(n) seeing many bees for a long time.
“How could that bee?”
“Oh, it bee alright.”
[a line from a Seinfeld episode that I’ll never forget]
Felt a light touch on my hand;
So, I looked at my hand.
There was a bee walking on my hand.
Thought: “This must be what it feels like to be a flower being visited by a bee.”
To be touched by a bee . . .
To be examined so gently so carefully by a gentle kindly little bee.
“Wouldn’t It Bee Loverly?”
“To bee or not to bee, that is the question.” -Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” [with altered spelling].
Noticed a dead bee on the ground.
Guess he found out how “not to bee.”
Maybee he bee happier now in heaven, Or
Maybee his soul is already in an eagle’s egg waiting to hatch and become an eagle.
And become greater than he has ever been before . . .
“To go where no man has gone before” -Star Trek [the original series]
Westlife – You Raise Me Up Lyrics (HD)
What it feels like to have a bee on your petal: the flower knows . . .
There used to bee a radio program called “The Shadow Knows.”
And there is a song:
“The Power of Love”
Jennifer Rush – The Power Of Love (Official Video) (VOD)
The Shadows – The Power Of Love with lyrics – love song

It was before my time. I only heard of it.
Was too young to listen to it.
The bee was gentle on me.
“He be a nice bee,” I thought.
“Or, maybee he bee a she bee . . . I don’t know.”
There was no fear that he/she would sting me.
Bees don’t sting flowers – at least as far as I know . . .
But, what do I know?
It felt peaceful.
There is no fear in perfect peace.
“Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.” -Psalm 37:37. KJV.
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” -1 John 4:18. King James Version of the Bible.
Think he landed on my jacket, too. Think it was my jacket. I forgot.
Thought of the pamphlet: The Rose
Thought of the song: “Sunshine on My Shoulders”
Thinking Now of a song by Neil Diamond: Be
And the song: The Rose by Amanda McBroom
And there is a Scripture about
The rose of Sharon
The lily of the valley:
“I AM the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.
“As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.” -Song of Solomon 2:1, 2. (KJV).

Preschool childlike thinking
[preschoolers don’t know nothin’ ‘bout english grammar]
Don´t know much about history
Bee happy . . .
Let It Bee [like the song by The Beatles]. “Let It Be”

Anyway, it was sweet to be touched by a gentle bee.
Remember the TV Series:
“Touched By An Angel”
Hope she finds her flower
And that he will be as sweet as honey and “as gentle as a dove” with her.
Many years ago, an assistant pastor teaching discipleship class asked me: “How do you think?”
[I thought: I guess he finds my way of thinking unconventional.]
His name was Pastor Shepherd
Speaking of remarkable names in association with their work or profession:
My driver education teacher’s name was Mr. Driver.
“Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.” -Matthew 10:16-20. KJV.
Just remembered something
On August 23, 2018, I wrote and published a story on my blog in which there was a character named Brenda. Brenda was a bee! Wouldn’t it bee sweet as honey if the bee who touched my hand yesterday as I sat on that bench in the sunshine was Brenda come to visit Little Sprout again?

Brenda? . . . Brenda?
Wherefore Art Thou, Brenda?
Would you lenda me your hand?
I must hold your hand, Brenda
And walk with you.
“Still Mountain Lake”
I don’t mind if you change your name, Brenda
I don’t mind if you be transformed into a different form
T’would Be Wonderful if you could talk with me and walk with me
And maybe write to me
And if God makes you into a lady,
Well that would be just loverly . . .
