I’ve quoted only the beginning of the poem “Hummingbirds” by Mary Oliver. You can find the rest of the poem here: https://thepoetryplace.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/hummingbirds-by-mary-oliver/ It really should be appreciated in its full glory. Mary Oliver is as amazing a poet as Margaret Atwood is a writer. They could have a duel and they would both win. Amazing women.
But I digress. Jesse from https://jessevanwagner.wordpress.com/ requested a hummingbird, so I went to work! I hope you enjoy, Jesse.
Our place is buzzing with hummingbirds from May through sometime in September. Hub loves them, and they love him too. Sometimes he holds the feeder in his hand and they come right up to almost buzz his nose before diving to one of the ports for nectar. They are like sugar-crazed two year olds, diving at each other and jockeying for position around our feeders. It’s like having little tiny jumbo jets all around you when you’re sitting on our deck in the summertime! It was a joy to create this little drawing.
O is the next unclaimed letter….any takers? I was thrilled with all of the K suggestions, and will be using them for this and future cycles; there were so many great ones.
Happy Friday, everyone! The weekend’s almost here! I’ve got something kinda neat (well, I think it’s neat!) to share with you tomorrow. I hope I’ll see you then.
