Poem: Morning Lesson (May 2014)

Found this poem in my journal from sabbatical.  Reminds me of Betty Woodward, my college mentor whose memorial service I’ll be attending tomorrow.  Mrs. W loved hummingbirds!

Morning Lesson

I pause on the boardwalk

fiddle with my camera

try to zoom in

on white blossoms

doused with morning dew

when she appears–

Hummingbird!

Alive with flutter!

Deep with color!

Pink!  I mean, PINK!

Calm.

Then–

gone.

Too quick for my camera.

But not for my soul.

I dance out my thank you

then slip the camera

into its case…

where it belongs.
