Hummingbirds in The Rain
Early this morning, from the back window, grazing at the edge of the lawn, I saw two doe and two fawns. I am sitting here on the front porch and I am not going to think about the box I am unpacking in the front room, I’ve opened it and spread everything out on the table, thrown away as much as possible .
Now I am at the stage where I stare at it in bafflement and occasionally walk by and move something then do more baffled starring but I am not going to think about any of that; instead I am going to drink a cup of hot coca with marshmallows and listen to the sound of falling rain and hummingbird wings as a dozen or so fly overhead maneuvering for a spot at the feeder.
I have a copy of the The Time Traveler's Wife that I’ve just started. When I put it down I was on page 55 and Henry is naked waiting in the meadow. I think this must be where he meets Clare so I wish you a good evening and I am going to join Henry and Clare.
