Nothing is more magical than
when a hummingbird comes in sight.
Myriad of hues tiny feathers
reveal by refracting natural light.
Hummingbird shows us how to re-visit the past for the purpose of releasing it instead of being caught in a permanently backward flight pattern. It also helps us to see that if we step aside, we may see our life differently. Hummingbird teaches us to transcend time, to recognize that what has happened in the past and what might happen in the future is not nearly as important as what we are experiencing now. It teaches us to hover in the moment, to appreciate its sweetness.

Hummingbird darts lightly through the world,
spreading its message of joy and beauty,
and teaching us to appreciate the wonder
and magic of everyday existence.
Hummingbird brings the gift of joy.
Learn to laugh and be happy.
A flash of harmless lightning,
A mist of rainbow dyes,
The burnished sunbeams brightening
From flower to flower he flies.
~John Banister Tabb
Have you ever observed a humming-bird moving about in an aërial dance among the flowers — a living prismatic gem that changes its colour with every change of position… it is a creature of such fairy-like loveliness as to mock all description.
