In the heather grey fields

waiting by the dividing wall

for a glimpse of the fireflies,


and the brook uncovers the stones,


In steadfast bounds they fly

the fleeting leaps of hart and hind

escaping into the dark edge of the hill,


and in this dream,


A speed demon flies backwards,

a rhythm in my heart

Oh, hummingbird hum for me

I’ll sing you my song

Love's Bounty & Carousel of Dreams
Reviewed by Axilea MU 6/18/2012
In dreams (and poems?), even the slightest presence becomes a symbol and I wonder what kind of message fireflies and hummingbirds are delivering to the conscious mind. A sparkling composition, full of warmth and a touch of mystery.

Reviewed by Andy Turner 6/18/2012
Super imagery. It takes me back to the summer of 87 when I worked in Texas, and saw fire flies for the first time. I thought they were made up until then. Same with the noise that crickets make and thunder and lightning going off at the same moment.

Humming bird, did he hum as you sang.
A magical quality has this.

The livid quickness of the imagery and life in this poem gives me palpitations, Morgan! It's like that sudden "jump" when falling asleep and you find yourself between worlds. A strange fast-forward / rewind sensation, too. I like! :)) xx

dreams often take us back to 'yesterdays' sweet songs. thanks for share

Reviewed by richard cederberg 6/12/2012
A delightful wash of imagery, MM. Love those fleeting moments involving hummingbirds, there in sudden peripheral blurs, giggling as they dart past. I construe, too, in the subtext, the encouragement offered to another (consumed in their busy life) to slow down enough to listen to the song of another's heart. It seems anymore, though, that genuine communication is on the endangered list. r

The lament of a fleeting moment in moments. Your choice of symbols is extraordinary.

Oh, I love this. You captured the moment and the moment was beautiful with the possibility that the speed demon was there for ill, but the hummingbird will stop, listed to your song, and eaqse your heart.

Different. I like different.

that 'speed demon' intrigues, Morgan,
raises thought to another level..the
illogicality of (some) dreams always fascinates,
taking us away from the mundane

I agree with John and Christine, this reads like a poetic song filled with the beauty of a hummingbird singing his song.

Lovely poetry, Morgan. Missed you much.
