HUMMINGBIRD
Michael R. Collings


whisk of brown not even breath enough
for slash of red or shimmer-green

just whisk of brown beyond spring-
unfurled jasmine knots evanescent

leaves that surround white cream
and yellow fragrances beyond that whisk

of brown darning in and out of naked
ligaments clinging to their arbor

whisk of brown and blur of wing and
sense of needle-bill searching sweetness

in bitter white-sap jasmine not yet
resigned to bloom
