Dance

That dazzling hummingbird

slowly buzzing

and flapping its wings

a thousand time in a blink of an eye

staying suspended in the air

defying the laws of nature

to get just the drop of that elixer

that nectar

which will justify its existence

gives meaning to its

flight of beauty

that dance of the desire and the fulfillment

the beauty and nature

the union of the

that eternal thirst and the

parched soul

the persistent hovering at the

hollyhocks

and the daylilies

giving a  strong competition to those

adamant bees

shining those iridescent wings

with that shine and shimmering

It sucks, sip and

drink the nectar

which gives her the sustenance

to weave that beautiful dance

in nature forever.
