Poem: "Layering Flavors, Tastes, and Textures"

This poem is spillover from the May 4, 2021 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] chanter1944, [personal profile] technoshaman, and Anonymous. It also fills the "support network" square in my 5-1-21 card for the Leaky Pipeline Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by a pool with [personal profile] ng_moonmoth and [personal profile] fuzzyred. It belongs to the Rutledge thread of the Polychrome Heroics series. It is the fourth in a set, after "Escape a Thousand Memories," "Who Can Create the Future," and "Good Food Choices Are Good Investments," before "A Vibrant Symbol of the American Dream" and "The People Who Give You Their Food."

Birdfeeding

Today is sunny and mild.

I fed the birds.  I've seen house finches and doves.  I saw Bob and another squirrel on the hopper feeder early this morning, chasing each other.  I saw a male goldfinch in the yard.

Before supper, I picked half a bag of mulberries.

After supper, I picked a handful of black raspberries.

EDIT 6/22/21 -- I picked up a trolley of sticks in the south part of the ritual meadow.

EDIT 6/22/21 -- I moved some of the kindling from the pile on the grass to the rack on the patio.

EDIT 6/22/21 -- I watered wildflowers in the prairie garden.

I saw several bats swooping above the driveway, hopefully eating their weight in insect pests.  :D  Sometimes on a quiet night, I can hear them clicking and squeaking.  Tonight,  a breeze is whispering in the trees, so I couldn't even hear the flitter of their busy little wings.  But I was very happy to see them.  <3 bats.

As it is dark and I'm tired, I am done for the night.
