I heard the birds in the trees overhead and pulled up a chair to watch.
Benji joined me on my lap.
An Anna’s Hummingbird perched high above – perhaps he watched me too.
I moved to the shed to hide from view and Benji followed.
We waited patiently till the hummer dropped down to feed.
Then waited some more till he turned his head so it glittered ruby red.
When we were through I got up to leave and just then he came and hovered nearby.
‘I knew you were in there all along,’ he seemed to say.
I think I’m in love. 🙂
