Evening visitors;
bats flitting around the yard.
Where do they come from?

Bats regularly flit around the back of our house in the evening but I have absolutely no idea where their home is!

Winter Garden

In my winter garden
the last few leaves hang
like bats, from the cherry
and the ash trees.


Sitting outside as the day cools down
watching the bats flit by
I wonder where they have come from
and where they call home.


Dusk falls silently.
The small bats flitter and swoop;
dining out tonight.


Sitting on the garden seat
in the silent twilight
I watch the busy bats flitting overhead
and wonder where they roost.
