Bee

I remember

I was

Perhaps 14.

 

A dusty pine forest outside Jerusalem.

 

I met a girl

With an allergy

To bees.

 

She said

If she was stung

It could kill her.

 

I was stunned

By the precarious nature of her existence.

 

Here one moment,

Gone the next;

 

And,

I used to love the bees;

Well – still do, in fact.

 

Like the Lorax.

 

Remember

Your EpiPen.

  1. Beautiful bees , essential links in the chain of life for our species I think (apart from those with allergies). Beautiful illustrations – cute Lorax cartoon on Youtube. An early learning of life’s fragility and part of the foundation of a medical vocation?
