Strength

In weakness there is often strength.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
leaf and branch and bloom—
a singleness of beauty
in the varied parts

wilderness morning—
the flimsy crimson flowers
flaunting their color
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
hungry tongues close in
on tasty crimson blossoms—
hummingbird heaven
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
hummingbird tenses
before piercing the blossom
with its spear-like tongue
