Love is in the air

111515 Sonoma County 397
Love is in the air
Hummingbirds come together by the redwood trees
Beak to beak flying
Spinning in a synchronized pattern
Spinning like a corkscrew into the air
Cascading suddenly down and away
Flying off to wispy clouds
Beyond the stand of trees
Lovers laugh to see the sight
Of nature all around
While hearts entwine our feelings find
Our hearts back here on the ground
Joyous visage looking up
The lives in truth emerging
As beauty was
Still beauty is
In our joining we have found
The parts of us worth saving

Bird bath Fall color
The Sun whirrs
my loved one stirs
my heart improves
on a sunny Sunday afternoon
sunshine on the curtain falls
like a poem falling off the bed

hearts delight in the afternoon bright
as lazy is what lazy does
on a day like no other
balmy breezes and the Redwood trees
river noises expanding none the less

the mating Hawks above us
calling out their names
omen of magnificent becoming
on this glorious day
I have learned to live each moment
and this indeed is a very fine moment

Hummingbird at Bantam
On the patio watering plants in the Sun
a hummingbird brushed her shoulder
and gazed briefly into her eyes

the river of life and wind of God touched by a hummingbird

a river of humanity flows on a road
like water over rapids
sunshine or clouds do not slow down
the flow the river passes

and wind of God touched by a hummingbird

loving beauty and cherishing time
to make a space to reflect
surrounded by color and wisps above
finding each moments best aspect

the river of life and wind of the creator
touched by the brush of hummingbird wings

gazing on this sunny afternoon
at the beauty of her smile
and the gift of her time
days and nights shared
with wings of a hummingbird

the river of life
and the breath of God
across the earth arriving
at the place, this space,
in the form of a hummingbird

Hummingbird at Bantam
A cocoon by a river
Hanging in the air
Above the trees
Not in the trees
Above the world
Not in the world
Tender warmth
Enshrouded in thread
Growing new wings
And colors which emerge

Awakening in a cocoon
Branches shadows colors
Light of day or night
Sometime difference merges
In vivid space to grow
Where life and love are melded
In a protected place
Breathe and pulse enshrouded
Growing all life’s grace
