An Unusual Visitor

Early morning duties in the garden,
brought me face to face with an
unusual sort of visitor.
"The Garden Moth"
What brings you
to the garden sanctuary
small delicate brown critter?
Your wings resemble velvet
winter attire, yet you
were born in summer's climate.
Perched on the edge
of a watering place
 for the birds,
were you drawn there by
the morning sunlight?
Your tiny black eyes
 stare  into the water,  
collected  in the bath
 from a night rain.
Careful lest you  become
breakfast for a noisy
 Jay that frequents this
place of refuge.
Blessings for the day.....Dee Dee
