Hummingbird's Flower

The wind shall hush your name in breeze

And whisper time into a freeze

Burgundy rays then warm time’s heart

And melt our differences apart

Birds sing melodies in favor

Of your sweet scent and flavor

They sing all day and lead to dusk

And trade farewell for dulcet husk

Searching for your scent was vast

But I now must put you in my past

Your scent is thrilling with a sting

What’s one less bird that once would sing


  • Cheeky Missy

    Wow! So beautiful and bittersweet, laden with such lovely imagery! Poignant and tender, though almost a tad flippant in closing, as if covering the depth of the grief over the loss thereby. I really like it!
