This post was written for the 100 Word Challenge at Julia’s Place. Anyone who has seen my tweets in the last couple of days will know that I really witnessed this phenomenon. Apologies again for not having had time to comment these last couple of weeks. It’s been a difficult time for my family. Thank you to everyone who left messages of support last week – I really appreciated it. I’m back up and running now and will read and comment on as many pieces as I can.
Yesterday a wall flew down our street. Yes, I was surprised as well. Especially as walls are silent and this one sounded like a motorbike rally. As it got closer I realised that each brick was the size of a penny, and the buzzing was thousands of tiny wings beating in harmony.
The tree opposite now has a pulsating mass hanging from it. I think the bees are sleeping, but I know at some point they will leave. Having announced their arrival in such spectacular fashion, I suspect they won’t be sneaking away in twos and threes when they go.
