Sometimes To Bow Is To Disappoint

I wait here in the garden
to watch the flowers wilt

with the light

The hummingbirds to eat
lick the last of the nectar

Slugs make their way in
follow the flowers
frogs follow them

Beetles tumble up the earth
digging its way to its desires

The light lifts everything here
and I waited to be lifted
