Encounter With A Winged Jewel…


Zipping by, you caught my eye,
It was just you and me.
Elevated within a dusty landscape,
You danced among the manzanita tree.

A winged jewel,
Light, a servant to your colorful arrangement.
My eyes could not look away,
Mesmerized by the iridescent.

I watched as you took moments to rest,
Wondering if you knew I was present,
Intrigued that you were alone like me,
Party to solitudes’ peaceful gifts.

Upon discovering your name,
I find it suits your beauty.
Dear Anna’s hummingbird,
Thanks for pausing to let me see.

Joyous Plumes…


My heart was troubled

Disconnected from the light

Deep in the throws of negativity

Viewing life with dark-filtered eyes


Serendipitously my attention refocused

On a small piece of creations’ beauty

Perfection in colors and patterns

God’s art arrayed, gloriously


With the filter no longer influencing my sight

I entered awe’s dwelling with a humbled heart

Experiencing needed pause and reflection

I was again centered in the moment, now unlocked


Hypnotized by the plumes of a peacock

I was instantly swept away

From the accumulated pain and sadness

I accepted throughout the day
