Autumn Musings of a Hummingbird

Perched in the bare branches

Hummingbird surveys his territory

Singing of days gone by when nectar was plentiful and sun reflected beauty in the garden

He watches the squirrel gather her acorns from the nearly bare oak tree then run across the top of the fence to her hiding place

He sees the scattered leaves that have become the crunchy brown landscape

He notices the geese flying over in their strictly regulated formation

He senses a dampness in the air as rain promises to fall once more and a chilly wind wafts over his iridescent feathers

He shivers at the thought of white crystal blankets that lately appeared

He sings and watches and thinks and waits as seasons come and go
