Carousing Hummingbirds
Sky parades a flutter of wings

Peeping through 
Hued foliage

Butterflies, bees comb the blossoms
A lilting sapphirine playground

Feathers twirl
Amethyst rush

Aurai play violins
Waft like fiddler's notes on the breze

Brush the senses

Awakening the muse
Reminding me of nature's beauty

Time's, fate's realm.

The above poetic form here has been introduced to me by Avia Tinder of The Friday Sparrow.
Thank you, Avia.

      1. From your phone to mine
        From the lap of poetry to
        The top of our brains
        Our efforts are not in vain
        Like an eye for an eye


      2. “Took an un-trodden path once, where the swift don’t win the race.
        It goes to the worthy,
        who can divide the word of truth.
        Took a stranger to teach me,
        to look into justice’s beautiful face,
        and see an eye for an eye,
        and a tooth for a tooth.”
        ~ Bob Dylan

    1. I am well , thank you sweetheart , I hope you are having lots of broth and keeping yourself warm. I can quite visualize you curled up near the fireplace dreaming away , eat well, I feel that you really don’t take good care of yourself. Somehow , that makes me sad.

      1. I am trying to do better about taking care of myself. There has been so much to do and others need so much some times that I will put myself last. Not whining about it but I need to work on it because if I don’t take better care of myself who will do all this stuff hahaha πŸ™‚ Don’t be sad. You deserve to be happy all the time πŸ™‚ You my sweet friend are the kind of person who deserves all the happiness this life can give πŸ™‚

  3. “Carousing Hummingbirds” – you caught me with the first line, and reeled me in with the rest. This is an interesting form, where can I find a description of how to write one?
