Hummingbird by Bill Fleming

Air trembles like a bow on a string                                                                                                  Still lighter the beater brakes

Its tremolo over the rose bush                                                                                                           Its timbre breaks into fragments

The chords of our voices                                                                                                                    As we across the table

The clatter of dishes                                                                                                                       Falls unheard against our window

The beater does not care for us                                                                                                          We are slow as snails to him

As he alarms the blossoms                                                                                                                   With his gentle probing

There is life inside the glass                                                                                                          There is life outside the glass

For my part, I would prefer                                                                                                             To be a beater of the morning air.
