A Sweet Blessing

I was out in the garden late 
this afternoon....
during the twilight hour. 
The skies were strangely
beautiful, and I was mesmirized by
the golden clouds, reflecting the last
 of the setting sun.

I think it a sweet blessing and my
good fortune to have noticed 
 a fluttering movement in my 
peripheral vision. 

No further than a foot away from me 
was a beautiful little Hummingbird, gathering
nectar deep inside a Mandevilla flower. 

 In a matter of 
moments, those fast moving wings carried
our little garden visitor away.

I'm glad you stopped by.....Dee Dee
