A Poem by Diane Webster

Busy Notice

Did hummingbirds leave
because the feeder reflected empty,
but I was late for work
and didn't want to take time?
They could wait
until tonight or go
to the neighbor's feeder.
So I filled the feeder and expected
instant gratification
like "thank you" "you're welcome"
instead of desertion,
unless mornings
changed into freeze mode,
and empty feeder signaled
migration urge,
and I was too busy to notice.

Diane Webster enjoys the challenge of picturing images into words to fit her poems.  If she can envision her poem, she can write what she sees and her readers can visualize her ideas.  That's the excitement of writing.  Her work has appeared in Kind of a Hurricane Review, Eunoia Review, Illya's Honey, and other literary magazines.
