Honey bees and Bluebonnets

I moved to Texas from Europe in the late eighties.  I didn’t take it well.  I thought for sure I was being punished for some unspoken transgression.

Then the bluebonnets bloomed and I knew I had come home.

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.” ― George Gordon Byron

With calm and yet with questioning eye,
But moveless still, as though the stone
Were portion of his being’s own.” ― Edward Robeson Taylor
