A flower stretches its neck in the sun, Anthers protrude rigidly beyond its petals, Waiting expectantly for the bird
A Sunbird hovers in the garden Flutters from one flower to the other Its feathers glisten iridescent blue.
Pollen scatters from its wings falling into the troughs of longing stoma The roses whisper for it to stay a little longer But the lilies beckon with seduction The sunbird rushes in hypnotic attraction.
I am the Sunbird Untethered Unhindered Free
Darting between the flowers Filling my cup with nectar Waiting for wholeness to fill the emptiness
