Ungraceful flight of brilliant Blue Jay
lifts his wings and rests in oak branches
then jumps from place to place
before continuing on his clumsy flight.
Rolling flight of tiny sparrows
seems to glide over hills of air currents.
They lift their fluttering wings together
and rest on the fence top
then take flight for places unknown.
Zipping flight of manic hummingbirds
lift their whirring wings
and race from tree to fence to bush
and back again in constant flight.
Flapping wings of three ducks
heading north in synchronized formation
Silently they pass by
stretching their necks and wings toward their evening resting place.
Wobbling flight of a solitary bumble bee
carrying his overfilled belly of nectar
back to the hive.
He stops to rest on the red umbrella
before lifting his invisible wings for his final flight.
