At The Grocery Store

There's a lone orchid tree in the parking lot at the grocery store. It's surrounded by acres of asphalt, but blooms gloriously as if it's out in the wild somewhere. Not so long ago, when a swarm of bees formed a hive in its branches, grocery store employees erected a temporary fence around the trunk to keep the curious at bay. And then as suddenly as they had come, the bees were gone.
