Wings

There is a special event that makes me fly and it is related with time and our need for endless time for the things we like ......I fly in the flight of the hummingbird´s wings when he comes to suck the "fucsia" plant that is in front of the window of my back garden This beautiful little bird makes quick sudden movements around the plant moving its wings so quickly that it is almost difficult to see them. It is like a dance that is always unpredictable and all of a sudden he dissapears. I always remain with a strange feeling of sadness because they show how impossible is to enjoy more of their magnificient dance and how impossible would be to keep them or make them keep flying for our pleasure. They are like many beautiful things that come to us in life but will go in a definite time because that is the way life is, we are always greedy with nice things and want to keep them for long but the hummingbird shows me that all beautiful things have their time and it is determined how long they will stay for us.

I love hummingbirds! You are right that so many beautiful things just fly away, and that is just the way it is.

I saw my first one the other day, a brown one. They sound like UFOs hovering. For such little things they can be pretty aggressive.

I'm always captivated by hummingbirds as well. It's fun to watch them stop at feeders, I always expect them to be exhausted by all that wing flapping!

Thanks for stopping by my new blog.

Lovely, thought provoking post. Your hummingbird illustration is perfect for the larger point you are making.
