[Hummingbird images from the internet]


COME DANCE SAYS YERETTE
Way way back to days of Hyarima,
You resonate with breath of heaven,
Little jewel of the sky,
May i call you little dancer?

Flitting into my garden,
With your sword-like beak in fencing fl├Ęche,
And feet en l’air,
Such a wonderful sight you are;

You tease with your glimpse of delight,
Even Lady moon lowers her sweet coy lashes,
Sigh, sigh, you never stay long enough,
So our breaths may do a pas de deux.

Notes
Trinidad - land of the hummingbird... Yerette literally means hummingbird  in the original Amerindian(Caribs and Arawaks) language. It is believed these mysterious birds, with their vibrant colors, flittering wings and aerial acrobatics, contain the souls of the local’s ancestors

Chief Hyarima

The hummingbird - messenger ....of heaven He thereby connects humans with the power of God and raises them to the fifth (and next) level of human consciousness and the process of human development.

A Mayan legend says the hummingbird is actually the sun in disguise, and he is trying to court a beautiful woman, who is the moon.

contrary to popular belief, hummingbirds can walk, but they are pretty bad at it


There are two hummingbirds on The Coat of Arms of Trinidad and Tobago

  1. Very nice, Gillena. I can just see them flitting around you garden, staying here and then there, for just a little bit. We had them "invade" out backyard the first year, of two, we were here. The seemed to settle on the Bottle Brush Trees in blooms, bright red. They didn't come this year.
    The stop over on their annual flight from South and Central America to Northern U.S. and Canada for the Summer, the return to Winter in the South. A few stay in Texas here, guess they're pooped from all that flying. :)
