Shimmering Jewels

I stand at the window

. . . Waiting, . . . Waiting,

Waiting for a return.

Suddenly like a little tornado,

the hummingbird whirs into sight.

It’s iridescent feathers

shimmer like jewels.

And hovering only long enough

To kiss each blossom.

  3. How perfectly SUMMER. I enjoyed your poem. I’ve been getting dive-bombed by hummingbirds all week and loving the playful dance of, as you put it so perfectly, each little tornado!
