royal visitor

swoop!	

cardinal 
on my railing

i
am important

imperious look
his side eye

no time to tarry
likes of you

away!

judgement day

humming bird
helicoptered up
beak to nose

are 
you
a
flower
?

hum
hum
hum

zipped away

i was not

the end of summer

i

beneath the bush
fat chipmunk
settles
in his pudge

well satisfied

scurries off!

you never know!

ii

crickets 
chirp 
all day

insistent

iii

leaves
so green
so plump

barely 

clinging

to branches
