The Birds and Bees...while meditating.

Spring flowers

This morning before I meditated, I opened my window just a few inches to let in some fresh air and sunlight.

Around 30 minutes into my meditation, I heard the buzzing of a bee that came to visit my pot of magenta flowers (I think they are chrysanthemums) on my window sill. I was worried for a moment that it would be trapped in my room and cannot find its way out, but it left after a while.

Then when I was almost finished with my meditation, I heard a strange sound - flapping and whirring of some sort. I opened my eyes and saw a real-life yellow and blue bird had popped into my room for a visit and hopped onto the corner of my TV. 

I squeaked a high-pitched "Oh!"

I think that must have scared it.

It cocked its head to one side, did an about-turn, and flew back the way it came in - through that narrow crack of window and curtain.

"The Birds and Bees" in my room sounds a little kinky, doesn't it? :)
