A Hummingbird, Yesterday

A hummingbird visited our deck
But ever so briefly.
He hung around the hanging basket
Outshining its blooms, but delicately.

A friend feeds hummingbirds
sugar water mixed strong as an enticement.
She has dozens of little birds -
Buzzing around in pleased excitement.

Mine left as quickly as it started
Stayed for seconds - why not hours?
Then up it lifted, off it darted
Free to seek some other flowers.
