A Little Surprise

Early the

other morning,

I looked out

the window

out where the

flowers were

in bloom.  A

glimpse of

fluttering

caught my

eye.  Waking

to see

what it was

before me,

I focused

closely as

each flutter

moved quickly.

Desire lept

into my being.

Telling myself

to breath and

to look patiently.

There before me,

flew pure joy

and wonderment.

The first hummingbird

to catch my eyes

this season.

Oh what a delight.
