symbolizes enjoyment of life
the sweetness of the day
to love more fully
utters to be more present
brings playfulness and joy to life
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:

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.”

–Kevin, inspired by your found poem.
Now I need to learn to do that, to respond to a poem with a poem.. Very lovely piece, Kevin
I know! Kevin is awesome like that!
I love when you respond with a poem! It’s so much fun. It’s inspiring too. Thanks for stopping for a visit.
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!
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. 🙂
Thanks for letting me know! I fixed the link. 🙂
We have a trumpet vine by our back patio that attracts hummingbirds during the summer. I eagerly await their return.
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! 🙂
