After reading “Feathered Fans” by poetess Michele Lee 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.
