Hummingbird (2)

It embraces what the mind cannot.
To touch, to be
acquired in the way that light

is drawn to the seed’s
core, one must imagine
silence in the purity of

space – that emptiness between
thought and utterance – filled
with what precedes

intent. The movement
has no end; it is

the breath inhaling us all.

    • I can’t remember the reasoning behind that line, if there was any. I wrote this in the 80s (maybe 1987?), and I still feel connected to it. But that could be due to the bird and not the words. Ha!
