Ain’t We a Pair: Companion Pieces

I Know God Made Hummingbirds to Fly

I know God made hummingbirds fly
But I don’t know why
this particular humming bird
flitted in about head high
and looked me right in the eye
And I don’t know why
but thought I should try
to share his impertinence with you

A Solitary Hummingbird From Nowhere

A solitary hummingbird appeared from nowhere
Punched a hole in the theory of an endless sky
and stopped my wondering mind dead in its tracks
“Behold my singularity,” said she
Then camouflaged herself in speed
before my smile could morph into hello
Leaving me with naught to do
But frame her thus and forward her to you

A Sprightly Kitten Called Life

A sprightly kitten called Life
spied the golden ball of yarn called We
batted and teased and unloosed strands
in a flurry of unraveling
and then romped off
Leaving us to wonder
when it would return
to finish what it started
