Hummingbird

by Carl Mayfield

From olive tree to conifer
across a pale September sky;
he's changing not before my eyes
but behind his, his heart hammering
a portrait faster than any brush
can stroke, his true colors
swimming in iridescence.

  1. Wonderfully portrayed as hummingbird. I wonder if you know the aesthetics of Mississippi artists Walter Anderson. Very much in keeping with the great artist's vision.
