Poem In Response

After reading “Feathered Fans” by poetess Michele Lee Sefton from the Valley of the Sun, I was inspired to write this short poem in response…

In the nectar you prepare
and the kindness that you share,
your heart, dear Michele, is sweet.

Birds need the cool, clear water,
as temperatures grow hotter,
in Sonoran Desert heat.

    Oh Phil, what a sweet poem. ❤ Is this by chance a poem about our dear friend Michele Lee and her poem about her delightful hummingbirds? I love it and I think she would love it too! ❤ 🥰 💖 😍
