Beggar's Bowl


                                                       ... on a branch of the birch

                                           ... a beggar's bowl

                                                                       ... seeking one more cup of summer

  3. Oh, wonderful! I think that expression is likely to stay with me as our summer runs out (which I hope is still a long time away). One more cup of summer.

  4. Amen to that sentiment. Nicely crafted poem. Just as I read this I can hear and see a pair of house sparrows flitting back and forth with small insects to feed several hungry mouths in my birdhouse. They have a job to do and by gosh they are committed to the task. I swear Teresa every post or poem you write hits me squarely in the past or the present. I like that. I like the calmness that it provides.

    1. I was just watching one sitting on my railing with a small worm in her mouth en route home ... It's so fun to watch the birds and other little beings in their daily lives. Yes, they are committed ...

      I am so grateful for your responses.
