I’m above the tall lily stalks
With the delicate orange tubes-
That were bursting with nectar,
Reaching hungerly for the sun.
A heavy cement turtle guards them,
As a mother reads to a child…
In plastic perfection,
While a rock rabbit is heavy, yet alert.
White roses fill the empty space
Spilling their fragrance carelessly.
A lone bee, that is far from ordinary
Is nestled in this scene.
I pause to take it all in…
Expecting the gentle hum of the bee
But, instead I am greeted in song…
Carried by a beautiful feminine voice.
It’s like nothing I’ve heard before.
Puzzled, I look for the source and find it–
Not a radio or TV– but a simple bee.
Alone in my awe, I shake my head at this curiosity
Had the song always been there I pondered–
Buried under work, chores, and life? I was baffled.
Had I experienced a miracle? Yes! I realized…yes!

I’m looking for Beta Readers for “The Button“. It’s a paranormal story set in 1983 with a bit of romance– and an angel (Zelina from “This Second Chance). Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested–and have the precious time to do it. I understand how busy we all are, especially going into the summer. I’m hoping to get it to final editing by the end of June or beginning of July! Thanks, Denise
