September’s Sunday morning rain brings a flock of hungry robins to the complacent, slow worms. Clouds like flipping light switches turn the sun off and on. The birds are fattening up for the long flight south. It feels a bit early for their migration. They move with purpose and I swear excitement, as the lush, too-long grass is a worm collective oasis. The flock’s intrusion into the turf is of little concern to the year-round feathered residents who frequent the feeders and the fruit trees.
Wet green leaves quiver,
diamonds in a sun dance
to wind’s cool music.
