Contented

The hummer showers in my garden, lolls in sprinkler’s flow
Little thing, she worries not of crises ’round the globe
She simply does what she was born into this realm to do
Adds song to waves of air the wind brings toward my window, through
She zips and soars at speeds unheard of, flirting with her beau
She builds a nest from dog hair, floss, spider silk, mallow
She fills her role, no grasp, no guile, remorse not in her sphere
Her contributions vital as any being here.

It is no secret. We should be so focused.

    Kim,
    Congratulations on being first to the posting post this week!!!

    And, what a beautiful way to awaken our thoughts to the beauty of nature. Not a secret, but before us.
    A lovely poem for the poetry prompt.
    Best wishes, Eileen

    I love it, Kim. I have hummers on my porch too – so adorable. Sometimes they come inside and get stuck on my window ledge – twice I have gently cupped one and took it outside to set it free – light as a feather in my hands. The image is beautiful too.

    You have beautifully portrayed the hummer and her role in the nature……..So true…she is not worried of the crises around the globe
    She simply does what she was born into this realm to do
    Adds song to waves of air……wonderful…..

    Really beautiful The bird exists just to do her duty and she does it so beautifully.
    “She builds a nest from dog hair, floss, spider silk, mallow
    She fills her role, no grasp, no guile, remorse not in her sphere.”
    Excellent lines. I like the description of the way she does her work, without remorse.

    One of the things that I like about the natural world is the way that its creatures go about their business. Sometimes we are cursed by our imagination, our dreams, our worsened fears that we keep gnawing at. Perhaps we need to focus more on just being.
