Oh that I would be a
Hummingbird.
Feel everything so deeply through
my thin skin.

My pulse counts out the
Rhythm of my mind as
I fight to stay in this life
Everything

would be so much more
Beautiful. The touch of the
flower, and the taste of the air
A lover’s song like music on the

Wind.
Alas for I am not that way
I pull myself in tighter and
tighter, curling ‘til I reach

Explosion. Colour forces out of me;
my eyes, my mouth, my hands,
and I dance, dance, dance, in
the rain that falls.
