The smoke blew away during the day. Leaving us with soft puffy white clouds.
There were two new fires yesterday…one in Gateway,
And one around Delores, Colorado—adding to smoke coming over the Uncompahgre Plateau
Still, there were moments of the bluer sky and puffer white clouds
Still, there was a rightness in our yard and on the farm
The little hummingbirds buzzed around us as we moved to and fro and in and out
Their movements and chatter a melody.
It’s easy to stop all work and just sit still watching them
Letting time and work slip by like water in the canal
The silence left, after the wind dies down, filled with the buzz
Of tiny wings
And chatter as they vie for places along the feeders
and tranquility, and calm
Experienced while watching those tiny flying jewels called Hummingbirds.
From my world to your heart,
