the hummingbird

the hummingbird
symbolizes enjoyment of life
the sweetness of the day
to love more fully
~~~~~
the hummingbird
utters to be more present
demonstrates independence
brings playfulness and joy to life
~~~~~
the hummingbird
says lift up negativity
be resilient, travel great distances
express love in daily endeavors

Life is a constant of changes.  As I go through my days I am hoping the hummingbird symbolizes the life in which I am seeking. Today’s post is what is called a “found poem.”  For more about found poems visit:

  1. Found poetry can be the way “in” to poetry for so-called reluctant writers. I like this one. Hummingbirds are fascinating to watch. They really do symbolize the “sweetness of the day.”

  2. Be resilient,
    Heart;
    Hover
    where you find
    the sweetness:
    savor the flavor.
    Allow
    us to be excited
    by beauty:
    above, beneath, beyond.
    Be resilient,
    Heart.
    Above all,
    be resilient.

    –Kevin, inspired by your found poem.

  3. Hummingbirds are fascinating, aren’t they? I love watching them feed outside my window each spring. It’s not quite time for them to arrive here yet, so I especially appreciated your poem as a preview of pleasures to come. Thanks!

  4. Hummingbirds are one of my favorite birds. They are so rare that spotting one is like a gift. You captured their spirit beautifully.

    (Also…your link to your Instagram account on your sidebar doesn’t work. Let me know how I can follow you. 🙂

  5. We are OBSESSED with hummingbirds. We go through sugar by the 10-pound bag during the summer. I bought my husband hand feeders this year to try to get them to eat out of his hand. I”m sure I’ll be writing about it soon. Love your poem! 🙂
