Hummingbird

Amazingly all 5 of us
are together in the backyard
checking on the
strawberries
so as to not miss
one’s perfect ripeness,

and a humming bird zooms in.

He is here and there
and here again, sampling
each raspberry bloom.

All eyes are on him
including two quite young ones
and four feline.

He comes quite close
to get a particularly appetizing
looking flower.

He stays longer than I
expect him to,
unafraid of us
as we stand still.

And then with a woosh
he is off to his next
adventure

and we go inside
to make our dinner
and eat our strawberries.
