wilderness morning—
the flimsy crimson flowers
flaunting their color
~~ ~~ ~~
hungry tongues close in
on tasty crimson blossoms—
hummingbird heaven
~~ ~~ ~~
hummingbird tenses
before piercing the blossom
with its spear-like tongue

  1. How easy it is to get inspiration from nature. When I read your work I like to think of the desert just outside you back door!

      Thank you. Actually, you’re right; The desert IS just outside my back door, only a few steps away!
