Ready for Liftoff

Still groggy
And sleepy eyed
I spied
An emerald 
As she dropped by--- 
To taste the day.

She struck a chord
As she hummed
And soared---
Get ready to lift,
And savor the gift
Of the day.

    Beautiful pictures, beautiful message!


    1. Thank you. The hummingbirds by my window give me a lift each morning. Then when I venture out, they buzz me a cheery hello. Great way to start the day.

    absolutely gorgeous!! my neighbor feeds hummingbirds and this summer we have seen them very rarely– I love these pictures


    1. Previous years we would have so many competing for a space. Now, just this emerald one and I love seeing him/her in the morning. Cute—as I type this by my window, he/she hovered by the window and peered at me. They sometimes want to have a moment.
