Swallows on the wires

A large flock of swallows

dropped in today

for late afternoon snacks from the bug larder

furiously swooping and scooping

feasting by snacking in flight

Between forays

they rest on the wires

carefully arrayed

the requisite distance apart

allowing others to fill the gaps

on arrival

Their antics bring me much joy and delight.
