july wanes

 at the new place
 so first i saw this one
 then this one
but i thought it was the same one
 before it vanished
not before i saw two white banners
leaping away into the meadow edge
 yes, sleepy babes
one tiny touch, 
my finger tingled with blessing.
 on this morning
 crazy funny hummingbirds
 a feast from valerie's tree
 see the moth shape 
on the bluebird house?
wings brush the rough wood as mom and dad
come home
 a little later
 this morning
the babies were hungry
waiting for more food
  rain clouds
moved through
and the day is fair, clear, a day
a day to love life,
to take care of
obligations and promises.
just a day.
