Flowers and the Hummingbird

Written by: gautami phookan


                 hummingbird poised in air--                       

                 dizzy honeysuckle           

                 can't see the wings. 

                                                                  a long beak disappears

                                                                  inside a foxglove;

                                                                  time left hung in golden green....

                                     droplets on the petals

                                     of a fuchsia --

                                     the bird sips pink rain.
