“I dream of hummingbirds” by Steve shanks

I dream of hummingbirds

I dream of hummingbirds visiting at night,
incessant ,
blocking the light,

I dare not move quickly or strike them away,

But perhaps if I’m quiet they'll all go their way.

I dream of hummingbirds wave upon wave ...

I think of the past...
about what's gone today...

hummingbirds call to me and to my dismay,

what’s past must stay past...
the birds need me today.
