Hummingbird Audience

Sitting on the porch this morning
playing guitar and singing
surrounded by Jasmine & Magnolias
purple, red and yellow flowers

I had a hummingbird for an audience
He was buzzing around the garden
Just as I started singing, "How Can I Keep From Singing"
he stopped on a branch about 20 feet away
and stayed there for the whole song
swinging his head back and forth
as I maintained eye contact

Then I made up a song about a hummingbird in the garden and he went back to buzzing the flowers...
