Lorelei Kay

Guarder of the Nectar


The green-throated hummingbird

perches on a branch near the patio

feeder, providing daily company

as I peruse my morning paper.


As other hummers fly close,

they are quickly chased

away in a blur of flight

by the defending sentinel.


Hour after hour, day after day,

he guards his territory, bolting

after any intruder who might

threaten his personal supply.
