Sunbird

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
