Hummingbird - Poem by Marilyn Lott

It happened one day, it was right after noon
Quiet it was, I said not a word
For all of a sudden on my flowers nearby
I heard the whirring sound of a hummingbird.

I held very still, scared to move a muscle
My camera was in my hand
As he flitted from flower to flower
He did not, of course land.

You can see him if you look carefully
In this picture here of mine
Right above the word hummingbird
You will see my sweet delightful find.

    Wonderfully captivating poem and picture to go with it! We have many hummingbirds that come to our yard every day. I love watching them, and every so often they will suddenly sit on a branch perfectly still for a minute or so then take off again. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    We have been watching them come and go all day. I wish they would share instead of chasing one another off! Little stinkers. HA

    I heard they have to eat their weight everyday because of the calories burned up by those super-sonic wings of theirs. I wish I had the kind of flowers and bushes that they like- I planted one but they never came to it. (Report) Reply
