Dare To Share Your Gifts

A poem inspired by a hummingbird

There, on a bare branch,
a flying ruby catches my eye.
It’s a hummingbird holding hope.

I am mesmerized
at how small such a being
is tucked into a heartbeat of feathers.

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
