I was crossing the backyard when I happened to notice the still body of a native Bumble Bee lying in the grass. Gently picking up the small body, I laid her in my hand. I felt sad but also grateful for all the Bumble Bee had accomplished in her short life.
I recently learned that native Bumble Bees are the only bees pollinating tomatoes here in the PNW. That is a lot of bee work for my cherry tomato plant, where the sweet fruits grow in clusters! Now, every time I harvest, I offer gratitude to the plants with my breath and from my heart to the Bees that helped make each tomato possible.
As I cradled Bumble Bee, I felt called to build a Bridge of Light, which I sent back to the time of her passing with Reiki. Once the Bridge was complete, I placed her body gently at the base of one of the flowering plants Bumble Bee had tended so faithfully and offered gratitude for her service.
