like a bee

“In the village, a sage should go about
Like a bee, which, not harming
Flower, colour or scent,
Flies off with the nectar.”
The Dhammapada

 This year, I have a bee hive under my deck. If left to their own,
the bees will fly in and fly out, bringing back wonders from their travels.
They do not bother us. We do not bother them. A sweet Summer friendship, enjoyed from a far.
