Clouds of hummingbird

Movement

quick

sharp

zooming in and out

like tiny airplane bombers

in pursuit

my nectar

back off

zoom zoom.

I look up to see where it is they go

and the clouds are moving fast

front coming

storm soon

like a large white hummingbird

tongue extended

to sup on the nectar

of the approaching weather

fast

zipping by

quick movement

here comes the showers

boom and the cloud is gone

so very fast

too quick for the eye

absorbed into the dark of the moment

that devoured all of the sweetness

of a summer eve.

 

thoughts on storm clouds fast-moving and the daily hummingbird dive bombings that happen so very quick.

A grain of movement

I move

slowly building

one grain at a time

into something

dreamlike

art molded from nothing

but broken shells

ground out through time

into a speck

of one in a million.

I build it with thoughts,

whisks of memories that came to call

like a friend at the door

of imagination

bursting in with a smile and sincere hello,

a celebration of being,

creating something together

that will ultimately fall away

into a wave

but forever captured in memory

whimsical images

of a tiny grain built

into something better

than it began,

temporary

sand art

moving one grain at a time.

I first found Fawn when I began blogging, her Triggers Horse site was recommended by WP and I popped In and liked what I saw.

Fawn tells wonderful tales based on her life, childhood and everything in between.  A heartwarming place I am sure you will love and she always makes me smile with her wonderful comments.

I asked Fawn to choose two pieces that she thought were her favorite or best pieces and I loved them both so check these out and I know you will find a new friend who you will visit often.
