The Hummingbird

From flower to flower


it flits and sips


the nector so sweet


without using lips.

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.

Beccy.

Yes Hummingbirds're amazing, I love the way they hover in mid-air at rapid wing-flapping rates. I only see them in the documentaries, we don't have them in Australia! Thanks for sharing with us on details of how they flit & sip the nectar. Cheers
