“Anna’s Song”

While camping in Anza Borego after my separation I did a lot of wildlife viewing. Desert Big Horn Sheep were pretty cool, I never saw a mountain lion in spite of dawn and dusk hikes almost every day. I did see hummingbirds which i have always found pretty magical. The hum of their wings and sheer improbability make them amazing. I am also impressed with how they migrate, flying all the way up until they catch the jet stream. Very cool. In Anza Borego there are rufus and anna’s hummingbirds. The anna’s is a little smaller and a lot more colorful and inspired this little piece:

Flash of Green, pretty Metallic Green

A color I thought was invented by Chevrolet

Flash of Green, shiny Metallic Green

Aquamarine, rose and magenta

But the words that they use to sell automobiles

Won’t take you to the heart of the hummingbird.

Splash of Green, shiny Metallic Green

In the inner ring of her hazel eyes

Flash of Green, Pretty Metallic Green

I swear I see reflections of heaven’s light

But the words that they use to sell salvation

Won’t take you to the heart of another’s soul.
