The Nectar Battle

In a contemporary yard

the battle begins

hummingbirds ping pong around

which one will win

Aerial maneuvers

neither easily cabined

such skill

difficult to imagine

One flies off

while the other drinks

only to return

and try to interlink

Swatted off

the two battle again

taking turns drinking

then riding the wind

The battle ends

each having their fill

flying off into the woods

till the next drill
