Little Bee Me

Blogger micki said...

My son's autism beat us both down last night. I feel like this little bee, fighting to get into the flower bud, all closed up tight. Some day this bud will open, and the bee will get through, but right now, things seem almost impossible. I'm waiting on the fringes, like the bee, for the oportunity to get inside that closed up world my son is trapped in. One day, when the bud opens, the world will see the beauty inside that I know is there. I know my son must be struggling more than I am; but today I feel overwhelmed, not hopeless, though. And if the bud never opens, little bee me will always be there for my son, ready to give whatever he can receive from me.

You have brought tears to my eyes. I cannot imagine the frustration and pain this must cause in your heart. I hope that some day he will bloom like the flower.

God Bless you.

Amazing detail on this macro shot! That is one tiny bee! I like how the background came, makes the photo look 3D

Hm, sometimes the tiniest creatures have the biggest and kindest hearts.

This photograph and the given backstory both spell LOVE and HOPE beyond comparison.

My thoughts are with you. And I hope that the flower will open up and bloom, and cause you joyful tears.

I love the halo of hairs around the plant against the blurred background.

Love, be it between lovers, parents and children, or bosom buddies, is singularly the best gift from God to mankind. Following tightly behind is probably the nature. Rarely do we see both in one picture. This photo of yours, Micki, is your best gift for me today.

Micki, This is a great shot! Whether your son is bud or a flower, I believe he is more beautiful than this bud, you have so nicely captured, and still one of God's greatest creations...

Hi Micki, great photo for expressing your thoughts. A flower is a wonderful thing, even if it never opens.

Yes, .... really like that certain feeling that one would get, as if the insect is sitting up there and surveying the world around him. Appealing!
Colors, depth, lighting, ...... nice one!!

ohhh, my God!! hopefully that little bee will have in front of her a wide open flower waiting for her....it must be really hard to wait for it, but i'm pretty sure, and praying every day, that your son won't be trapped anymore.
Beautiful macro!!

...thank you for sharing with us, my thoughts are with you and your son, always hoping...and someday the flower will bloom.

They say a photo can be a 1000 words...in this post I think its the opposite, the story is more important and tells more than the wonderful photo.

A great photo, that's really touching with the story that goes along with it.

Spring is the time for opening up...and, as they say here, "time is the best medicine".

all my best, and prayers for the bud to open.

lovely pastel greens, that little dab of yellow creates a great accent for the eye.

This is a very beautiful picture but today I am more touched by your wonderful words.
And I am sure the bud will open one day...

Your story is quite sad Micki. I hope your son can break through the flower bud just like the bee in the photo.
