Silence of the Hummingbird

I asked for a quiet mind 

& it arrived

floating on a peaceful cloud,

the words disappeared,

my mind became a blank canvas of emptiness,

how beautiful the realms

of no-words,

of deep silence.


I thought of the hummingbirds

who travelled thousands of miles across oceans & continents,

moving from one far away place to another--

was everywhere they flew like home?

did flowers with nectar greet them everywhere?


My mind grew silent,

my heart began singing,

I became as a hummingbird--

home everywhere.
