Backwards and Forwards

Happy New Year

Colombian Hummingbird (detail) John James Audubon


After the Ball Drops


Only in winter do you really think
about hummingbirds, especially at new year
when flying backward and forward
and hovering at the mouths of spring flowers
is the only way to make it through the snow.
