Autumnal feast

Autumnal feast

Small birds
           blue tits finches and sparrows
on a frenzy of feeding
           devouring the orange berries
so abundant on the bushes
           at this time of year

They come in their twos and threes
           their light weight
barely bending the branches
           and they peck at the fruit
as though there was no tomorrow
           and for them perhaps there is none
