Buffet of Flowers

young hummingbird bush has yet to bloom – still they fly… taste of spring in the air sweet nectar is sipped from the daffodil trumpets… wings fluttering fast irises in sight colorful birds visit them… bellies still not full azaleas call out the hummingbirds last retreat… satisfied, they nest *Entry for Sidney Lee Ann’s “ Sweet Flowers and Hummingbirds" contest by Carolyn Devonshire

This is quite the glorious write my dear friend! I love the use of the hummingbird and the flower within your poem! My favorite stanza has to be the 3rd stanza in all its glory...honestly, Irises are one of my favorite flowers, that and the rose! I really love your poem that I have read this evening! Great Work!!
