In the delicate breeze a hummer sways on a bud-dappled branch to the soothing sound of gently tapping bamboo tubes, and beneath a marbled sky of pink and powder blue the scent of morning pervades the air with promise and for the moment, one grandiose moment, I am supremely content.
As I’m dressed in a red he can’t resist, the hummer soon alights on my shoulder and ponders the words on my page, then perches hesitantly atop the pen as if, he too, has something to say. Doesn’t everything in nature? I embrace the occasions to listen, no matter how fleeting.
For all too soon, as I drained my first cup of coffee the wail of a distant siren threatened to shatter the enchanted moment, yet the hummer remained. Then came the muted buzz of an electric saw (we are all early-risers around here), and regrettably, yet most unavoidably, I sneezed (dang allergies!) and the hummer took flight with the moment in tow. Aw, well. But I was left with a line of a song in my heart “The feeling remains even after the glitter fades…” ~ Stevie Nicks. Yes, the feeling remains!
Don’t you just love a day that starts out great? I feel as if I can conquer anything and so much more, I just had to share! What’s your idea of a great start?
