I wasn't seeking a hummingbird

July 11, 2017
 
enduring as a Bengal's stripes
I've strayed evermore ground,
trekked on and around, uphill.
 
chancing upon a familiar river
I've hushed curious bends and
drifted, late with silent stealth.
 
flowing fluently without breath
I've caught the fascinated view
loitered near the mouth, scant.
 
racing mindless as a fallen leaf
I've slipped unversed as rhyme
broke madcap as rapids, riven.
 
breathing in, iridescent as flight
I've reached a ginger paw, alive,
smiled, surprised to be at home.
