A Hummingbird Hums

November 18, 2020

PROMPT: Birdsong

59
A hummingbird hums
as it zips through the air - so

graceful it is
with a buzz and a flair

How delicate - how rare;

Hummingbird dives with a zhwee
as you blankly stare

Transfixed - by the enchantment
of your new companion.

Birdie beckons, yes -
it dares you to advance

The figure eight with its wings 
whoosh

Sweeping wind
as the feeling tingles your skin.

You fly and feel peaceful 
Realize nothing can stop you

if you stay strong
within

    Re: Yeah it's normal to hate recordings of your voice. When you speak, your voice travels through your jaw and muscle and whatever as well as through the air, but in recordings you only hear the latter, so it sounds much harsher than expected. Plus, you hear every weird thing that you don't notice while you're talking.

    Oh my gosh, when I tell you that I SCREAMED... Congratulations!! There's a chance I'm more excited than you are lol. LOOK EVERYONE MY SON DID THIS. Also, your voice doesn't sound like I thought it would, and idk what to do with that knowledge. I felt like it should've been lighter? If that makes sense? Not higher, just... lighter.

    Also, I was wondering... how do Wednesday Words work, exactly? Like, does WtW tell you ahead of time?
    On a random note... are you into KOTLC by Shannon Messenger?

    Totally captures the lively nature of hummingbirds, very nice! I actually just found out I can speak hummingbird haha, well sorta. I was trying to whistle, I couldn't, but I did attract a random hummingbird to fly right next to me by my failed attempt to whistle

    I LOVE HUMMINGBIRDS, WE FEED THEM IN THE SPRING/SUMMER. we get like, 8-10 on one feeder at times and they can decimate the feeder in a day. and they sure are ornery creatures! i've had one almost on my hand before, and i just can't believe how tiny they are. and cute. and pretty. ok, i'll stop now, but i love hummingbirds. i'd want to be a hummingbird if i couldn't be a peregrine falcon.

    Aww I love how innocent and whimsical this is.
    Unrelated: I saw that you added Phlegmatic-Sanguine to your bio. How cool! That's a somewhat uncommon type from my experience, but a very awesome one. No wonder you're so likable. I'm a Melancholic-Sanguine, which means I'm definitely the most emotional type and very internally conflicted XD. Do you know what Connor's type is? From his response to the "YOU in Threes" prompt and his overall online personality, I'm guessing he's at least partially Phlegmatic, but I could be wrong.

    Legit hummingbirds are crazily loud. They sound like giant bees but don't really look like them. You captured that perfectly, great job!!
    One last question... Boba ice cream bars????
