A story with more details about my Pretty Little Hummingbird poem

 

Pretty Little Hummingbird

 

This is a story to enhance and give more detail to my poem about the Pretty Little Hummingbird.

A few days ago I returned home from Los Angeles where I went to visit my daughter Vicki for my birthday. We had a great bonding Mom and Daughter time and she did everything she could do to make my birthday perfect. It was one of my VERY best birthdays. She took me around to see several natures things that I love to do. We went to GriffithPark which is one of my favorite calming places as we listen to the water flow down the little creek.  It is good for walking and just looking at pure nature scenes. After spending time there chilling, we went up to the Griffith Park Observatory. It is beautiful up there since they redid the premises. There is a lot of astronomy stuff there- which I can relate to much of it because I know some things about astrology- which in a sense is one and the same. The  Stars, Sun, Moon, and the planets. It was very nice walking around and seeing all that interesting stuff and the new grounds.

After looking around we were walking away from the Observatory and saw statues back to back and in a sort of circle of a few Astronomers. While looking at the statues, several- about five hummingbirds kept fluttering over Vicki’s and my heads. It was so strange. I had never experienced anything like it and neither had she. There were flowering bushes there near the statues by where we were standing. There were people all around the grounds around us but the hummingbirds seemed to be concentrating on Vicki and me. They would flutter near us and the flowers and fly over our heads again and again and fly off always in the same direction- Finally I said to Vicki it appears they want us to follow them. They always headed in the direction of where the grass ended. There was a drop off to see the hills all around and the city of LA in the distance, which was a beautiful site. As we walked near the edge I started reciting a poem Beautiful Little Hummingbird. I knew I wouldn’t remember what I was saying so I asked Vicki to remember the poem for me. I did a few lines and stopped so I could finish it later. We walked back over to the statues and flowered bush and one of the hummingbirds re-appeared. He was in tones of brownish green in color with a red vest on his throat. I put my hand out towards it and said, “Pretty Little Hummingbird come to me.” He was watching me and kept edging closer to my outstretched hand. He came so close about two feet or less away and settled itself on a branch of the blooming bush. I was so shocked that it came so close to my hand and even more shocked that it sat on the branch. I have never seen a hummingbird do anything but flutter around. I was talking to the bird and telling it that it was pretty and asking it to come and sit on my hand. It kept sitting on the branch but was looking directly at me and started making bird noise and talking to me. It was not the buzzing of the wings sound I have always heard before. I have no doubt that he was communicating a message to me, though I didn’t understand what he was saying I knew it was something good and it made my heart feel light and happy. Vicki took some pictures of the bird flying towards me and also of it sitting on the branch looking at me and talking to me. Some people were walking by and saw me talking to the bird and it talking to me. They started coming closer to watch us and The Little Hummingbird got startled and flew away.

As he flew away, I felt so inspired, uplifted, and blessed. I sent the thought to him that he had made my Birthday a very special day. It was such an awesome experience knowing somehow God has chosen me to have the ability to somehow communicate with birds and animals.

I guess that is why some people who know me call me St. Francis - lover of and communicator of animals. Though I am by no means a Saint, I like the feeling of having a special bond with birds and animals.

Vicki and I were both excited about the whole awesome experience of what great things of inspiration are on this Earth. What a beautiful day it was!

Good memory, Judith. We have humingbirds flitting around the ranch here all the time. I even had one sit on my finger one time. Thrilling.
Keep up the good work.
Many blessings.
