Hummingbird

 

Look carefully in these two photos and you’ll see the camouflaged hummingbird in the midst of the alstroemeria!IMG_4343 IMG_4344

Hummingbird

magenta-green and white

carrier of light and wind

from the south you came singing

a high shrill whistle weighted with rain

everywhere you flew the grasses bowed in prayer

and a greenness came to the land as your song was heard

your wings rushed the clouds

to bring sweet wet seed from the skies

and everywhere you looked was singing.

 

~Harold Littlebird, Native American (Pueblo) poet
