The Hummingbird

The sunlight speaks.  And its voice is a bird:

It glitters half-guessed half seen half-heard

Above the flower bed. Over the lawn …

A flashing dip and it is gone.

And all it lends to the eye is this —

A sunbeam giving the air a kiss.

The order of things
Is not determined by us
Nature incarnate.

This little guy is not normally found here in the winter months. When spotted near the top of a mesquite tree, he didn’t seem to be bothered by our large group of nature walkers. Even so, I was reluctant to move around nearer to him for a better angle since others were enjoying the view.

Little hummingbird

So beautiful and wing-fast,

Come dart around me.

I fly to the “Flight of the Bumblebee”

I dance to “Shout”

I sing to “The Power of Love”

I live to the “Songs of Life”

I create to “Kind of Blue”

“The right notes can fertilize
the sound of a composition
that it can make the sound grow;
much like adding lemon
to fish or vegetables
that bring out the flavor.
That it’s your sweat.”
