September Moment

  1. I was sitting on the porch as dusk fell.
  2. I had been lazy this summer, and let some weeds grow.
  3. The marshy kind with the little orange flowers.
  4. I blamed myself for neglecting this patch
  5. Until a little hummingbird came and drank at each one
  6. I could see its eyes and the blur of its wings
  7. Nature's perfection.
