This time of year the birdfeeders don’t stay filled for long. Cardinals and chickadees vie for space. Squirrels wait patiently, or not so patiently, for treats to scatter. I use a combination of different types of feed – fruits and berries and nuts – that produce such a delicious aroma I want to try it myself! I think I would enjoy it as much as they do.
Filling the Feeder
over frozen grass
to the feeder.
I settle the can,
lift the lid,
fill the air with lusciousness –
bits of orange
mingle with cashews, peanuts,
sniff, sniff, sniff
to be among my feathered friends
and all the delectable deliciousness
