Whispering apricot beams shine upon frilly sheers,
lazy shadows dance in daffodil dawn colors,
pirouettes of pleasured moments,
silently flowing on smooth brush stroke walls
You breathe, softly, the sweetest sonnet,
rhythmically exhaling beneath satin sheets
symphonic…bringing a grin to the sunrise,
blushing clouds hide behind a...Read More

Tiny in shape but so cute

i hear the whisper
of your voice
carried on the quiver
of hummingbird wings
alluring me into dreams
like a lyric adrift
on westerly breezes
it lulls me to sleep
on a sliver of moon
within its lambent light
we dance ethereally
like shadows entwined
through the edges

Our world became suddenly brighter.
She was such a charmer!
Such a delighter!

A Tiny Yellow Hummingbird is Caught Categories: hummingbird, autumn, Form: Prose Poetry
A tiny yellow hummingbird appeared to be caught.
In a loop,
Struggling in vain.
Hanging, twirling, spinning.
Finally I ran out there.
Determined to save her.
Only she was no hummingbird.
Merely a yellow leaf caught on the tail of a spider’s thread.
I went back into...Read More

Sometimes love is not enough,
Like melting wax on a candle
As it's burns, vanishes into a kiss.

Hoping that what you give

Hummingbird Categories: hummingbird, poetry, Form: Blank verse
I imagine it was once slow and grey
then color came to a lackluster world,
tinted throats drank sunlight
through bowls of honey and light.
Eons shed a useless weight,
until a flint of flight hummed bright,
on shimmering winds.
This morning, one comes to...Read More

Hard Words Categories: hummingbird, poetry, Form: Free verse
A picture I will paint
a story I will tell
and make it perfectly clear
exactly what I would have it be
lines drawn straight and hard
words that images show
misunderstanding cannot be
exactness is the key
planes with corners square
angles sharp that define
colors I will state

The hummingbird might sing
In search of homeward tree.

hummingbird fades in raven's wingless memories Categories: hummingbird, autumn, bird, death, night, sunset, Form: Free verse
the flutter of little wings
pulsating in a windless dusk
as i watch the setting sun
glissade across the florid sky
its cerise glow reflecting prismatic
burst of colors on this little bird
as it sips the last of nectar
before darkness arises
my thoughts drifting
into night's allure
I am not Brave Categories: hummingbird, color, flower, metaphor, nature, Form: Blank verse
How brave the amaryllis is
emerging naked from the soil,
an umber golden spear to pierce
the heresy of August air.
I am not brave like pilgrim bulbs,
though planted fifty years ago,
still sending offspring to the sky
determined in a hostile sphere
to brave remorseless elements
