A Misunderstanding

You were caught within the gentle 

folds, heavy with water sprayed

before I saw you searching 

for this flower’s pollen.  

I paused, watched you struggle 

to recover from the shower

as I stilled and focused enough 

to capture this image; you regained

the power of your wings, shook 

the last drop of moisture off, 

and flew angrily near my ear, 

but dear little bee, I did not mean 

to disturb your work, just to preserve 

the blooms that provide such ample

employment for you.
