Like Hummingbirds on Crack

D,H, Moore wrote

in 2014

that his thoughts buzzed around

‘like hummingbirds

on crack’

but I like to think

of

Wordsworth & his sister Dorothy

wandering aimlessly

as a cloud

through the fields

in 1804

& being seized

by the vision

of the ‘host of golden daffodils’.

my distractions sit

in between

plentiful & constant

as weather;

sooner or later one settles

like a hummingbird

on a flower

  1. Beautiful. I have had those “hummingbirds on crack” moments. I, as you, much prefer the more sedate image of a hummingbird on a flower. The disciplines of reigning in one’s thoughts to devise a coherent stream of conscious communication are sometimes difficult to enact.
