Life in the fast lane!
This ruby-throated hummer
Hovers in mid-air
To probe one red blossom
And then another and another…
Quite a gas-guzzling way to fly!
What is Poetry?
Poetry is an athlete, a diva, a dancer.
She somersaults through daisied meadows
And climbs Mt. Denali’s peak with sure steps.
She echoes through valleys with sweet-soft song,
Performing pirouettes across moss-covered rocks
To cross babbling brooks that sing back to her.
Poetry is a courageous soul, a troublemaker, an imagineer.
She tickles sleeping bears with hunger
And stirs a hive of bees with sugary words.
She flies free and fierce and fast as an eagle,
Searching the panorama for new horizons,
Writing her words across blue skies and starlit nights
For all to see!
