The Bumblebee and the Sunflower

A bumblebee has been sitting on a sunflower outside my house for three days

I like to think that the bumblebee found the sunflower so beautiful that it cannot bring itself to leave

It has forsaken its entire hive to spend the rest of its time with the most beautiful sunflower it has ever seen

Even as the petals begin to fall off the sunflower the bumblebee continues to hold on

Because for the bumblebee it’s still that same beautiful sunflower it first came across three days ago

And although it’s probably not the case
I like to think that the bumblebee found the sunflower so beautiful that it could not bring itself to leave
