Where Nectar Waits

Where Nectar Waits

A Chapter by Dave Brown




Quickly darting

An instant passage

Round garden plantings

Then tarries to taste, till haste

Calls away to a further bloom

Where nectar’s sweet awaits

Their iridescent coloring

That shines longside

Petals opened to

I love the title of your poem. I kinda want to steal your idea, twist it a bit, & make it my own. How about "where the sweet peas wait"? (Just planted two planters of them yesterday). As I've told you often the hummingbird traffic in my garden is heavy & always welcome. I love how you never use the word "hum" or anything hinting at hummingbirds, but becuz of how you SHOW instead of tell, we can visualize movements which can only be those of a special tiny bird we all know & love. I also find it interesting that you've done a bit of typesetting . . . possibly an abstract blob of nectar splattered upon the page? *smile* Fondly, Margie
