Tigger2bSwift swallows arrived one morning
Intent on breakfast

With quick dips and swift soars
They swallowed prey

Tigger craned his neck
To and fro
Watching swallows come and go
Diving, diving, high to low

Quick turns
U-turns
No rhythm, no rhyme

Swift swallows flying
In tune with No Time

Aah . . . that’s better!

Have you ever watched a cloud of Swifts or Swallows engaged in an aerial feeding frenzy?

Dizzying, isn’t it?
