Wintering Hummingbird

Wintering hummingbird

                              A hummingbird hovers
                              in stillness of winter

                              when the sun deceives
                              on a frigid day.

                              Time stands still
                              frozen and wanting,

                              but the delicate creature
                              takes what it can

                              to sustain another day
                              of a front’s descent.

                              The jeweled vision
                              is a welcomed sight

                              for me in depths of despair
                              when I seek wellness of spirit and mind,

                              and acceptance of time and place
                              while awaiting spring.
