Dusk Flights

By Diane Webster

In the dusk-descending sky
hummingbirds rip from tree to feeder
twittering off the guzzlers
from the plastic flowers red
to attract any wandering hummer
before the residents dive-bomb
a hasty welcome, good-bye
as one mistakes a patrolling
dragonfly too slow except
to wonder what disturbed
his quiet air space
as night hawks dart above
still catching sun’s last glimmer
still catching insects visible
only to a night hawk’s vision.

    Do they catch rides on the backs of Canada geese in migration?
