the hummingbirds banked
around a corner
of the garage
ascended along the hedge wall
and pulled up level
with pale bells
strung there

their paired
flight pulsing – a strobe
of emerald and ruby
wings sounding
like breeze
tin window blinds

hidden in the pattern
of their maneuvers
was conversation

much more
I think
than just
a simple
regarding of nectar
