Humming-bird (A Collaboration)

by mossgirl19   Jun 14, 2017

Intoxicated in flutter
while dancing with winds.

Engrossed on the setting sun,
parting ways with clouds
as they split themself,
letting me float out of the atmosphere.

Candles seem to fade
in my presence,
I blew them out with my wings
so we couldn't see the dinner lit.

Night skies started to form
With the candles blown
Only the moonlight guides
the rhythm of my wings.

Fluttering, freely
Brushing against the soft cheeks
of the night-time winds,
as the smiling stars signal
the journey has just begun.

Sometimes clipped
struggles only come when the gusts
overtake my feathers.

Wanting to see me bald,
I fly easy, with the breeze.
Keeping steady aerodynamically
with the current.

Keeping in flight,
needing my feathers to stay intact

Tis' my everyday,
to stay adrift, overcoming
the varying currents of the air.

Headed towards unknown
possibilities, only knowing that
I am called to fly.

    This captures the moments of flight amazingly well. Almost as though the authors wanted to be such a bird, or have had a journey alike this one... Lovely Murphy and Mel

    Sounds like you are an angel flying far away to an unknown destination. The quality of feelings and wordings you have put in this is quite marvelous. I liked your journey throughout this poem.
