The Hummingbird

The Hummingbird

A Poem by Dara





From flower to flower


it flits and sips


the nector so sweet


without using lips.

Thank you so much. They are very fascinating creatures.
Very funny. The poor bird can get the nectar he needs but can't kiss his mate.

Yes they are. Only birds I know of that can nearly disappear before your eyes.
For such a tiny little thing, they are an incredibly complex organism. Spent some time in South America a while back and saw a number close up. Very beautiful, like Beccy says, they make you believe there truly is a higher hand at work.

Yes, they sure are fascinating. If you can, find your poem and post it. Would be great to read it!
I've never seen a hummingbird in real life; only ever via nature programmes.

They look so fragile, so beautiful, that surely they were created by a higher hand.

I tend to feel the same way. They are simply ethereal creatures, something not of this world. Thank .. read more
