Haibun- Warm Spring

Hummingbird and Ocotillo
The air is fresh and bright on my early morning walk. Thrashers, perched on high treetops are beckoning for the sun to shine on them so they may bask in it’s warm light. The ocotillos are brilliant green with the top of each stalk sporting a fiery bloom. Orange is a prevalent color here in the desert. The yellow-orange and crimson red lantana are a shock of arresting color. They beg the butterflies to pause on their journey to drink of their sweetness. A black chinned hummingbird is slurping nectar from a tangerine red desert honeysuckle.
Under the mesquite tree, a flock of lovebirds feast on birdseed. A perfect Spring day, a present if you will, given with hope and promise.
