The Message

The Message

Silent beating wings
fanning the evening air 
The ruby-colored hummingbird
appeared to me again
answering my prayer
On this eve of nuptials
I crave its gentle presence
To feel a willing spirit
Taste nectar of orchids
Surrounded by its essence
Marveling at its size
in this world of strength
A tiny creature
of weightless power
staying at my arm’s length
I receive its courage
propelling me ahead
An aging fear of unknown
gently eased from my mind
with words left unsaid
He took flight and I knew
he would not return
His work was done
the path became clear
and my worries to unlearn
