the hummingbird here
and not here
moment of stillness
just before the light
From In the Garden of Absence (Fruit Dove Press, 2012), my book of haiku and micro poetry.
The ‘hummingbird’ poem is also included in my film presentation for HaikuLife ‘Haiku Journey‘ organised by The Haiku Foundation and shown together with several other entries to the event on International Haiku Poetry Day, April 17, 2015. The event was an enormous heart-warming, global literary celebration of haiku, and if you missed it, you can catch up through the blog posts on the THF site and the links here
