hesperaloe hummers

hesperaloes’ heavy blossom boughs
like actors bend and take their bows
in buds pink and yellow
green garlands adorned
enchanted efflorescence

grey-green bulbous fruits
hang from slender shoots
dangling amidst bright blossoms
tomatilloesque capsules
bulge with spring’s bounty

hummers hum their songs
played on beating wings
then in jacaranda land
sing sweet refrains
with dripping beaks
