Early I arose
as dawn kissed the morning dew,
and on my patio with coffee in hand,
I noticed a flash of rainbow lightening,
a glimpse of invisible iridescent wings
darting and diving from flower to flower.
What a treat to start my day,
observing a dancing, dazzling hummingbird
that had fortuitously come my way.
As I watched this wonder of nature,
dozens of words flashed through my mind
that seemed to capture
what I saw the hummingbird doing….
words like darting, dashing, discovering,
and finally drinking a flower’s sweet nectar,
then dashing off to another.

This has the cadence and feel of “‘Twas the night before Christmas”….but is like opening up presents outside watching the hummingbirds.
Interesting that you would say that. I never thought of that. Thanks for the feedback.
