DISCOVERING THE SWEETNESS OF LIFE

DB6BC2C5-2311-450E-84A1-4E6565B6B85E

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.

Oh, that my day should go so well.

Oh, that I might also search, discover, and appreciate

all that flowers around me

and taste life’s sweet nectar.
