“Hummingbird” The Sunday Whirl #95

She courts the day’s rarity —
coral-laden waves with iridescent
plumes — as the sky dries

She bathes morning’s
rainbow threads without
incident, opening the sun’s
sleeved warmth.

Bottled silken dreams
from heaven’s terms
hum and visit desert flowers,
a fluttering blue ball paling me.

  8. could you take the first stanza and use it as the beginning of a dozen more poems…? Please.

  9. The feel of the beauty and mystery of nature is really soft but strong in this, pamela–and the images as vibrant as a hummingbird’s throat. I admire your ability to condense so much meaning and color into three short stanzas.

  10. I look forward to spring and the return of these beauties.

  13. I can see her flitting about, almost manic, throwing off colors that glitter with the sun, and the sky dries heartaches. Beautiful Pamela,
