Where The Hummingbird Flies
4 August, 2013
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


I miss you most this time of year
So many memories
Memories, once smiles, now tears

The things we did together
Sometimes just sitting
Sitting, and enjoying the weather

I remember how you loved watching the birds
A quiet, personal joy you shared
Shared, usually silently, without any words

You tried to coax the different kinds
Hours spent building them special houses
Houses, of many different designs

And as I ponder, a little bird zooms by
I know it's a sign to remind
Reminding, somehow you are always nearby

It brings a tear-filled smile to my eye
As I breath deep... letting go a heavy sigh
Knowing now, you're right here...
Right here, where the hummingbird flies

------- Author's Notes -------

My dad has been gone too long now.. I will always remember his gentle ways. From watching birds, to the shooting stars to the lightning storms he called Mother Nature's fireworks..
I miss you dad.. Always..

Your poem reminds me of my father-in-law. He had several humming bird feeders and they were there everyday. One had a bent leg, and would show up every year at his place in Palm Desert. I too, when ever I see one now, reminds me of dad. ....Thanks Dreamer
