those yellow finches
they’re back albeit briefly
they show up briefly

and flitter away
in bunches and so fast too
they get the job done

pecking with their beaks
those teddy bear sunflowers
they’re the little ones

they attack them hard

and then fly away
before you even realize
in a split instant.

  2. Gorgeous birds and lovely poem of observation. When I was young I used to think birdwatching was a “nerdy” thing to do. But I can totally understand the attraction now. Birds are so utterly fascinating. 🙂
