Nothing works harder 

To hover calmly 

Than the hummingbird 

Fluttering before my garden hose 

As I listen to Travels with Charlie

And water the lawn green 

To impress potential buyers.

He floats, vertically studying 

my waste of life giving water. 

He turns squarely. 

He darts quickly away. 

He returns patiently, 

Ducks through the water, 

And perches,refreshed,

on the pink oleander.
