still

be still:
i found your photograph
through tears of missing you.
all aflutter, my mind,
seeking solace in memory.
in perfect silence
it spoke
straight to the heart
of my matter.
spindley branches
new green shoots
perfect poise
unlikely
still
against the backdrop
of heaven.

A long-lost love.

For me, at least.

i love hearing what other people "see" in a piece of poetry.

this is a poem i wrote for my dad - who had taken the picture i describe. in the photo there is a hummingbird sitting perfectly still on the top branch of the tree.

thanks for sharing! :)
