I sit in the cab of my big blue truck and watch the mists coalesce into droplets on my windshield. This winter has been soggy even though it’s a little warmer than normal. As the beads roll down the glass I close my eyes and recall a warm breeze that crossed my yard and gently rung the chimes. The wind smelled of mint and fresh cut grass. If I concentrate enough I can feel the warmth on face as a warbler trills out his love song. On the edge of the yard the flowers hum melody as thousands of tiny wings play in the breeze. The flowers shake and weave as the bumblebees drink their fill. They’ve become used to presence and pay no attention to me as I approach the sea of bright colors. They rise effortlessly into the air going from plant to plant. To me, they resemble an armada of tiny zeppelins in some steampunk vision of a future metropoulos.
The bumblebees have no worries as they work. The sun’s song is a call for them to live as God intended. Their lives are their own with little thought as to the ticking of a clock.
I hold the moment intensely in my mind with all its details intact and open my eyes with a deep breath. The gray sky hangs low but I feel a little warmer as I turn the key in the ignition and the rhythmic thumping of the wipers pushed the water aside. It’s time for the big blue truck to carry me back home.
