It’s Like This, Honey

Inspired by the SFC Prompt: Tholos Dreaming

My favorite wild animal is the Wolf- my second isn’t an animal its an insect.

It’s the Bee.

Like Wolves, Bees are important to our environment and where they have been eradicated or hunted down or poisoned the environment fails. 

Maybe my love for these animals stems from their underdog status.

Or maybe when I see them I remember how fragile our connections to each other and our world is and it breaks my heart- but not in a bad way.

The bee was originally the symbol of an early Anatolian goddess who the Greeks later identified with their goddess, Artemis; so close was the connection that the priestesses of the goddess were called “honey bees.”
