Candied daylight

On our day off, we went for a walk in the woods. Settling down on the sandy grass, I rested my head and looked at the clouds drifting by. A spot of dark-grey in the sky, announcing the rain that would soon come our way. Shortly after, during a friendly game of soccer, I noticed a bumblebee stumbling around in the sand. I lifted her up with a small branch, put her down in the grass and hunched down next to her. She seemed so sleepy, nodding off and then jolting up again, clambering up the tall stems, holding on tight with her paws… as though she wasn’t quite ready for spring.
