Right to Left...


Life read from right to left today
As I held my hot coffee
and looked out the picture window

A hummingbird came into the frame from stage right
Green chested and hungry
it lighted on a few flowers,
then two,
then three...

...and in this space of a moment,
into which was squeezed 
a million heartbeats 
and as many beats of his wings
he paused
to flash his emerald breastplate my way,
as if taking a bow,
before exiting stage left...

....We are but a breath
and then we are gone......

Make the Moment Count
