with just two birds
longing for something yet intangible… dreamed
leaving little footsteps as if they were words
on the sands of paradise lost, enamelled as paper
footprints weightless, ageless
beyond their winged abilities
becoming language... poetry

Ode to a HummingbirdEmerald hummingbird, I seeOde to a Hummingbird2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who flutters inches away from me
And pollinates the budding trees
Why is life so hard?
Your wings beat ballads in the air
And you beat on without a care
And fret around to anywhere
With Sunlight in your heart.
Your life is hard, you have no gain
Your stomach holds you like a chain
And so you work through sun or rain
Your soul is never scarred.
Yet men hustle about like ants
And rudely shove, as in a trance
As if in a chaotic, elaborate dance
With sadness in their hearts.
But you buzz on, through day and night
And greet the morning like a kite.
You rejoice and play in the morning light
No coffee makes your start.
Wing beat puts pressure on your heart
But your work ethic, never marred
You’re never wounded, never scarred
Why is your life so hard?

It is not my right to tell you,
how we should live or die.
It is not my right to tell you,
how we should veiw the sky.
Though we are not as light as a feather.
I know when spring turns to summer,
we will all fly together.

Yes, all eyes on him! This little one deserves it - and oh, what a beauty! A real powerpoint moving in time, eyes so dark as the space beyond our planet, and this little bird is so powerful, so fast, so full of life. But you captured him, and he gives us this irresistible look, and maybe we're just a flirt for him. Nevermind! We're allowed to watch this dear brother's beauty forever.

My heart is a bird,
feathers blackened with sage ash.
Fear—fear is a regular visitor, cold as mountain water.
I am the wrong side of the desert,
I should be wind-blown, scrubbed free…
stillness and absence—not devoid of everything, but clear.
Fear but life;
I am so many birds.
I can see life in so many colors but
make gods of twigs and cage fastenings.
I feel a thrill at the notion of just
opening up and spilling all this color out—
greeting the world like
my phoenix or thunderbird and ceasing to be
I find in myself a hatred for all this that makes me not living.
grey and catlike.
I am exhausted with the not-weight of sadness
that drapes itself over my shoulders.
I am at once a tree and a pillar of flame.
Flight and a stone sword.
I can sprout my own wings black as coal,
but have yet to learn to do more in my own form
than hover stagnant in the air.
Fear and duty.
What did I learn?
Why is fire a

Days and days go by
And no one takes the time to care
To see what might be really there
They're too absorbed with 'I, I, I'
But I see so much more than they
And by the time they look, it's flown away
Like today, something caught my eye
An emerald flutter of wings appeared
And as I smiled, to the window it neared
As big as a large butterfly
The hummingbird paused to say hello
But as soon as he came, he had to go
Now, I cannot tell a lie
But I am glad I was the only who saw
For I alone own that moment of awe.
