Two baby Hummingbirds
I’ve named them Pert and Prim,
So tiny — there are no words,
Life force beats strong in them.
I’m humbled bearing witness
To fledglings hidden in my tree,
My kitchen window gives me access
To wonders with no need of me.
Mama flits in zig-zag thrusts
To her nest with babies crying,
To throw off eyes she doesn’t trust
Predators who might be prying.
One week young and old today
Welcome to our changing earth,
We must care for it, they say,
As you remind us with your birth.
Hope you have a good weekend everybody!
